Maitland Divorce Lawyer
Skilled Assistance for Complicated International Issues
With globalization resulting in more marriages and relationships crossing
international borders, it has become more common for legal disputes regarding
family law matters to involve multiple countries. These include international child abduction,
child support and
maintenance orders across borders, inter-country adoption, and other marriage and
At The Troum Law Firm, P.A., we can advise you about enforcing Florida
family law rights in foreign countries, or enforcing rights established
under another nation's laws in Florida courts. Both situations may
be governed under provisions of the Hague Convention or treaties the United
States has with other countries. However, there are countries that do
not have agreements with the United States regarding returning children
who are unlawfully abducted within their borders. In those circumstances,
prevention is often the best course of action.
Our Maitland divorce attorney
has successfully resolved international family law disputes involving nationals
and residents of foreign countries.

Hague Convention Issues
The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction
is an agreement by party countries to ensure the return of abducted children
to their home country. The intent is to protect children internationally
from the harmful effects of their wrongful removal or retention, and to
set out procedures for the child's prompt return.
The Hague Convention only applies to member states and it can be confusing
and stressful when dealing with family law matters that involve overseas
issues. Because these issues are so complex, it is in your best interest
to work with an experienced lawyer who has handled international cases
in the past.
When the situation warrants, we take precautionary measures, such as:
- Protecting our clients against international parental abduction
- Skillfully handling custody and visitation cases in Florida
- Explaining all of your options regarding international marriages and divorce
- Creating a solid legal plan to protect your children’s best interests
