Cathedral City, CA asked in Gov & Administrative Law, Family Law and Personal Injury for California

Q: I would like to know if I USA court cases can be transferred to Saltillo or Other Mexican State?

Is the USA law interchangeable with the Mexican Law?

Can a representative from Justia headquartered in Saltillo answer this for me?

In the very low tab under Company and then About Justia says that about your company.

I want to know if this website Is a Company, an Enterprise, a Public Resource on Legal Personal Matters with voluntarily expertise input?

I would also like to know if public information, shared on this website has an integrated valuable purpose for the family, kids and parties involved in court cases?

A: more info needed.

however, i have never heard of a US case being transferred to Mexico or another country.

I believe that they simply would not have jurisdiction

A: Cases can be removed to federal court, or venue corrected to the proper district, but those transfers are limited to within the U.S. court system. If you are represented by counsel, ask them whether your matter might be suited for the doctrine of forum non conveniens, where an outside venue is deemed to be more appropriate. Good luck
