Facing international divorce or custody? Here’s what you need to know.

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.
