Summary:As a consequence of the increased mobility of families between different countries, family lawyers are now frequently faced by cases with an international element. Such cases may relate to any of the whole range of family law issues, and the applicable law is often difficult to ascertain. A Practical Guide to International Family Law provides the practitioner with comprehensive coverage of the international elements of the law, presuming a knowledge of the general law of children, ancillary relief, etc. The book is written in an accessible style - with checklists, flow-charts, highlighted boxes - for family lawyers in England and Wales who require guidance on good practice and procedure in respect of international matters. A sampling of the subjects covered include: recognition of foreign marriages and divorces --- enforcement in Europe and reciprocal enforcement worldwide --- obtaining evidence from abroad --- the UK's Matrimonial and Family Proceedings Act 1984, Part III: Financial Relief in UK after Overseas Divorce --- child abduction under Hague Convention and Brussels II --- international adoption --- immigration issues --- distinctive aspects of Islamic law --- cohabitation and same-sex relationships --- and many more.
