What Does an International Family Law Attorney Lawyer Do?

An International Family Law Attorney specializes in dealing with legal issues that arise in family situations involving multiple jurisdictions. They help navigate the complexities of different legal systems and international treaties. Here are some primary responsibilities of the attorneys at Arciniegas Abogados in this area of the law :

Cross-Border Divorce:

We handle divorce cases where the couple is from different nations or one partner lives abroad. This can involve navigating different divorce laws, residency requirements, and division of property across borders.

Transnational Property Division: 

We assist in dividing marital property when assets are located in different countries. This can involve understanding foreign property laws and tax implications.

Prenuptial Agreements:

When couples from different countries plan to marry, we can help draft prenuptial agreements that will be recognized in both jurisdictions.

International Child Custody & Abduction:

We manage cases involving custody disputes where parents live in different countries, or in instances of international child abduction. Such cases often involve understanding and applying the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.

International Adoption: 

We help clients navigate the legal complexities of adopting a child from a different country, including adherence to immigration laws and international adoption conventions.

Immigration Related Family Law: 

We also help with family law matters related to immigration, such as obtaining visas for children or spouses.

Legal Advice and Representation:

 We provide advice based on our understanding of different legal systems, representing clients in court or in negotiations, and ensure that all paperwork is accurately filled out and filed.

In essence, an International Family Law Attorney serves as a guide and advocate for individuals dealing with family law matters that span across different countries, ensuring they navigate these complex situations with expert legal support.
