What is the procedure, timeframes, etc for divorce for a couple who
were marriend in Brazil (5 years ago), have resided in U.S. for the
past 2 years and have 2 small children, both born here in U.S.?  Can
the couple file for divorce in the state where they reside or do they
have to return to Brazil to file andf finalize?  How long does this
take? What constitutes a "legal separation" in Brazil and is this
required prior to filing for divorce? Will the laws of the state where
they reside take precedence over such issues as alimony, child support
and visitation?  Can the wife legally take the children to Brazil and
not return to the US even if it is against the will of the father?
What rights to the children does the father have if he has been caught
in an act of infidelity?  What impact will infidelity play in the
resolution of the divorce?
