Interstate & International Custody and EnforcementWhen families move between states within the United States, they soon find that each state determines specific rules and laws regarding families. Many states adopt uniform acts, and there are federal laws as well, that can minimize the effect of the differences in family law between the states.
When families move internationally or are created internationally, the issues and the legal rights and remedies become much more complicated. International treaties and the law of nations come into play to determine how and whether rights developed in one country transfer to another.
Gevurtz Menashe attorneys can help you understand your rights when dealing with family law issues that have interstate or international implications. These can include both child custody cases and enforcement of agreements and court judgments across state and international borders.
