Divorc/Assets and Income Tax
If I got married in Brazil, and divorced in Brazil-but in the meantime lived in the US is my Brazilian divorce binding in the US? I have re-filed for divorce in the US so as to avoid paying taxes on assets my ex-husband is transferring to my name. I divorced in Brazil two years ago, in the US a year ago. I have lived in the US since 2001. My ex also claimed me on his 2006 income tax return although we were divorced in Brazil by Jan. of 2006.
