February 20: Hiding in Plain Sight: The International Family Law Issues Lawyers and Judges Miss


When people think of “International Law”, they typically think of extraordinary events such as war-crimes, genocide, international conflicts; newsworthy events bigger than their own lives and experiences. Yet, this is not always true. As globalized economies expand, the world “gets smaller” and people are more apt to marry or have a child with someone from a country other than their own or to relocate for a job opportunity. More often than is generally recognized - even by lawyers, judges and those who work in and practice family law - people wander into the realm of International Law when they separate, get divorced or wish to relocate. Many lawyers and judges fail to consider the international dimensions, problems and opportunities that become manifest in these situations. This lecture is intended to give insight and to help lawyers and jurists recognize when a family law scenario touches on the multi-lateral treaty known as the 1980 Hague Abduction Convention (“The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction) and other international issues. This lecture is relevant for attorneys working in family law and international law.

Also, Andrew is experienced in handling international child custody matters.
