International Family Law Desk Book draws together the law applicable to a wide range of cross-border family issues. A compact and useful resource and reference tool, this work addresses marriage, divorce, the financial aspects of marriage and divorce, parentage and parental rights, custody and child abduction litigation, child support, intercountry adoption, and cross-border child welfare.
Each chapter builds on the foundation established by treaties and uniform acts and incorporates caselaw, the restatements, and leading secondary sources.
The book includes extensive discussion of the international treaties that have come to form the basis for reciprocal relationships between the United States and more than eighty-five nations, the law applicable to transnational family issues in the United States. Written primarily for U.S. practitioners, the book also serves foreign lawyers and judges who need to understand the U.S. system.
