My question involves divorce in the State of: California
I'd like to ratify my divorce decree issued in Brazil in the state of California.
We are both U.S. citizens who currently live in Brazil where the divorce was issued. We´ve been residents of Brazil since 2003 but we were married in San Francisco, California where we lived for over 12 years before moving to Brazil.
Do we need to hire the services of a private lawyer to ratify the Brazilian divorce decree with the General Attorney´s Office in CA? If not, could you please instruct us on how to proceed?
Thank you in advance,
