Produced by Resolution's International Committee, this written guide with over 25 chapters of information and support aims to tackle essential questions that the family lawyer needs to ask when an international issue is recognised such as: Forum choice – when and where should I sue? Should I issue proceedings urgently to protect my client’s interests, possibly without notice? Children: where are they “habitually resident”; what international laws apply to them; how do I get maintenance for them; how to protect them against abduction? Practical issues: service of process, disclosure, international recognition and enforcement.
