In today's global age, more and more families have international ties. These families face greater challenges when navigating divorce, child custody and other family law issues.
A few months ago, our firm published a white paper outlining several key concepts in international family law. Titled "International Family Law: Divorce And Custody In A Global Age," the paper addresses important issues that can shape the outcome of your case.
These issues include:
- Jurisdiction - what court decides?
- Choice of law - what law applies?
- Enforcement - will courts in one country recognize the order of another?
- Procedural issues - what rules apply?
The paper is free to read and download. After reading it, you will come away with a better understanding of the legal framework for your case. You will also realize just how important it is to involve a well-qualified attorney as early on in the process as possible.
