The United States Gulf Coast refers to the 5 states that border the Gulf of Mexico. Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas comprise the Gulf Coast region and play host to over 4,000 oil platforms that bolster the U.S. petrochemical industry. The Gulf Coast is home to some major metropolitan areas like Houston-Sugar Land, Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner, Brandenton-Sarasota-Venice, and the Cape Coral-Fort Myers areas which have a population that exceed 11 million altogether. The Gulf Coast is home to many aerospace and biomedical companies but today also garner a large income from tourists.
The Gulf Coast plays host to some of the United States’ best lawyers who are familiar with local courts and procedures. Gulf Coast lawyers are familiar with taking immigration, divorce, criminal, civil lawsuit, and bankruptcy cases among many others. Court filing locations vary among Gulf Coast states but immigration and bankruptcy cases are commonly filed with U.S. Immigration Courts and U.S. District Courts, respectfully. Cases like divorce and child custody differ from state to state. A divorce in Florida should be filed with the local Circuit Court while a divorce in Louisiana would be filed with your local District or Family Court depending on your location.
