Often family law matters will have an international aspect. This can arise because one parent is now living overseas or property is located overseas. These matters have an additional layer of complexity, and will require expert and considered legal advice. Some common issues which arise in international family law matters are: 1. parenting arrangements where parents live in different countries; 2. deciding which country is the correct jurisdiction in which to start the case; 3. understanding the varying types of assets that can be held in different jurisdictions; 4. Hague Convention applications for the return of children to Australia; and enforcement of Australian Orders to overseas assets.
