Description
Summary:International family law has emerged as an important subject and has become part of the everyday work of family court judges and family law practitioners across the country. International family law presents many puzzles to practitioners, especially in the United States. The International Family Law Deskbook, Second Edition takes a broad approach to this topic and brings together the law applicable to a wide range of cross-border family issues. This new edition serves as a compact and useful resource and reference guide; the chapters within address topics on marriage, divorce, the financial aspects of divorce, parentage and parental rights, custody and child abduction litigation, child support, and intercountry adoption. The new edition also includes a new section on child protection proceedings, dealing with terminating parental rights and children's immigration issues. This 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 85 other nations; and it focuses on the law applied to these transnational family issues in the United States. While this book is primarily for U.S. practitioners, it will also be of use to foreign lawyers and judges with an interest in understanding the U.S. judicial system. Book jacket.
