Winter Park International Divorce Attorney
Florida Family Lawyer Helping Clients with International Divorce
The cost of transportation has plummeted in the last century, making it easier for people of most nations to travel abroad, where they may end up meeting a significant other and marrying him or her. To give an example of how much the cost of air travel has dropped, the average American Airline flight from Los Angeles to Boston in 1941 was $4,539.24 per person—a flight that took over 15 hours with 12 stops. In 2015, that same flight, which only takes six hours, averaged $480.89, according to Travel and Leisure. Globalization has transformed our world in many beneficial ways, and overall it has been a great boon to world peace and understanding of other cultures. However, it has complicated some aspects of our society, including divorce and separation. According to the Census, 21 percent of married-couple households have a foreign-born spouse. This can cause complications during divorce due to enforcement of child support orders, enforcement of spousal maintenance orders, inter-country adoption, international child abduction, and more. Here at The Troum Law Firm, P.A., our Winter Park international divorce attorneys provide invaluable services to spouses who are going through any type of marriage or divorce issue involving international issues such as these.
International Parental Child Kidnapping
Parental abduction is the most common way that children go missing. When a parent takes their child without the other parent’s consent or knowledge to another city or state, authorities here in the country are able to deal with the issue with relative ease. When a parent travels back to their home country and unlawfully takes their child with them, it becomes a much more complicated issue for the Florida parent.
The Hague Convention
Thankfully, many countries adhere to the Hague Convention. Under the Hague Convention, the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction is an agreement between dozens of nations to return abducted children to their home countries. Our attorneys are familiar with working alongside U.S. and foreign authorities for the swift return of children wrongfully taken away by their other parent. However, some countries are not members of the Hague Convention. It is much more difficult to recover children taken to such countries, and the best method is that of prevention. Our lawyers are adept at keeping children away from parents who have made threats or plans to illegally take their child overseas.
