International Family Law

Minnesota's International Family Law Firm

International family law issues arise in a wide range of circumstances, including cases where the parties hold assets in foreign countries, plan to travel or relocate to a foreign country, or need to seek enforceability and recognition of a foreign divorce, support, or child custody decree. International divorce and child custody cases often involve complex questions of jurisdiction, service, and enforcement, and may include the issue of parental child abduction (or prevention of parental child abduction) or wrongful retention of a minor child in a foreign state or country.
