When the problem confronting the judge is one of recognizing a divorce decree awarded by a foreign state, then once again the domiciliary concept will be used to determine the jurisdictional competency of the court making the award. The foreign divorce decree will be accepted as lawful and proper if it was given by the court of the husband's domicile or if the decree is one which would be accepted as valid by that court. The authority underlying the latter proposition originates in the case of Armitage v. Attorney-General. It is the purpose of this comment to examine briefly the doctrine of that case and its implications, with special reference being made to the problems that may arise in connection with the current United States divorce law.
