In today’s global age, families have become increasingly mobile. Those with ties to multiple countries face complex hurdles when confronting divorce and child custody.
International family law is like a jigsaw puzzle that involves many complicated pieces. Identifying the issues — and piecing them together in the right legal framework — requires professional skill, judgment and experience.
A few months ago, we published a free white paper titled “International Family Law: Divorce And Custody In A Global Age.” The paper addresses key issues for global families. Recently, we also published a SlideShare presentation summarizing the paper.
After glancing through the presentation, you will come away with a better understanding of the complex questions involved in international family law cases, such as:
- Which court should get to decide the case?
- Which nation’s laws govern the case?
- What procedural rules apply?
- How do you enforce orders of another nation’s court?
You will also learn about a related issue of central importance: international parent-child abduction.
