International Child Custody And Hague Convention Matters

In this high tech world we need lawyers experienced in international child abductions, and accustomed to tracing international assets internationally.

When parents live in different countries, their separation alone can present many issues in terms of custody arrangements. Parents worry that their children may not be safe in their home state. Or a mobile parent may present a risk of parental kidnapping. This can create a very complex situation, legally and emotionally. If you have been accused of wrongfully retaining your child in a foreign country, or if your child has been wrongfully removed to a foreign country, you need skilled legal representation immediately.

Lisa a. Vance is a Family Lawyer who Handles Cases Involving The Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and the International Child Abduction Remedies Act (often collectively referred to as “The Hague Convention.”)

Currently, more than 70 countries, including Mexico and a number of Latin American countries, recognize the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of Child Abduction. This treaty provides for an orderly means to resolve these disputes. If the other parent of your child has filed a petition alleging that you have wrongfully removed or retained your child, we are prepared to defend your rights.

With Decades of Experience, Lisa A. Vance has Successfully Represented Parents and Children Who Live in Many Different Countries.

As a result, she understands the laws and legal systems in many different countries, and will use this knowledge to your advantage. As your case progresses through the system, we will be at your side from beginning to end.

Lisa Vance also represents clients in complex international cases involving complicated jurisdictional questions and choice of law disputes. Our attorneys have worked to recover children kidnapped from their homes and abducted to other countries. We understand the difficulty of the rules and regulations imposed on this practice by the international community’s Hague Convention requirements.

We work with lawyers across the globe in happy circumstance, such as adoptions of non-resident children, and the not-so-happy situations of asset tracing in foreign environments.
