Family Law can be affected by multiple jurisdictions in a number of ways.
You or your partner may relocate overseas and need to make applications for Visas, Citizenship and/or sponsor or assist your partner in relocating. You may otherwise wish to marry or continue a de facto relationship with your partner, whilst both of you have different nationalities. Alternatively, you may choose to adopt a child born or residing overseas. Another hypothetical scenario might be one where you may be in a same sex relationship and be unaware of your rights and obligations in a foreign jurisdiction; and the entitlements and/or legal recognition regarding your union. A qualified Family Lawyer at Navado may be able to assist you throughout any family law matter that is affected by international law.
International law is the set of rules generally regarded and accepted as binding in relations between states and between nations. It serves as a framework for the practice of stable and organized international relations. There are various sources of international law such as conventions, treaties, international courts and organisations. One such convention is the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, in respect of which our Family Lawyers are familiar and can advise upon.
Children and the law surrounding parenting and custody may be affected by international law. This has developed over the primal importance of and concern for children affected by international law, so as to ensure the safety of children and that their rights and interest are protected. International law concerning children is motivated by the need to improve the protection of children in international situations, to avoid conflicts between their legal systems in respect of jurisdiction, applicable law, recognition and enforcement of measures for the protection of children. International Family Law matters often trigger or serve as a catalyst for international co-operation for the protection of children. An experienced Family Lawyer could be immensely useful in handling your international family law matter with regard to children.
Marriage and divorce is governed by each nation, as they have sovereignty over domestic unions. If you are are geographically affected by different jurisdictions, you may need to address the issue of how, if at all, your marriage has been legally recognised. In many parts of the world, the law is particularly and presently onerous for same sex unions; and marriages in this area are gaining traction around the world. Professional legal advice in this area of law may be necessary to ensure that you adequately safeguard your rights and entitlements.
