At Sasser, Cestero & Roy, P.A., we handle family law matters with elements that occur domestically and abroad. The breadth and complexity of such matters require a keen understanding of international law beyond the United States as proceedings will fall under multiple jurisdictions. As such, it is advisable to consult with an attorney who has extensive knowledge of foreign law coupled with a wealth of experience.
Family Law Matters Regarding International Evidence
Cases concerning international child custody may require international evidence and expert witness testimonies. A common example of this would be a parent refusing overseas visitation rights or attempting to relocate a child abroad without the other parent’s permission. Our lawyers can assist you with such matters to determine if:
- The other parent’s act constitutes as international kidnapping as determined by the International Parental Kidnapping Crime Act.
- The parent placed the child in danger by allowing him/her to visit a specific country that may be deemed unsafe.
- The issuance of multiple passports for the child enhances the risk of a parent abducting the child.
- One parent has violated the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
- A foreign country will permit the return of your child (in the event he/she is abducted by your ex-spouse)
