As a Texas divorce attorney, I would advise someone in this situation to seek the guidance of a local attorney who is knowledgeable in both the laws of the country where the divorce took place and the laws of the country where they reside and own property, which admittedly may be hard to do.

If an attorney with knowledge of the law in both countries cannot be found, I would advise the person to retain attorneys in both places and let them consult with one another.

It is important to understand the implications and potential conflicts of these laws in order to protect their rights and assets. An attorney can help navigate the legal complexities and provide guidance on the best course of action.
