Any family can be an “international” family in today’s world. Military families, diplomats, immigrants, or simply high-asset families who travel often and own property overseas. Family lawyers can increasingly expect to work with multi-jurisdictional, cross-border families, and when doing so, will inevitably run into the issue of child abduction. Melissa will address the laws that family lawyers need in their tool kit, how to find resources and information to prevent and respond to child abductions, and when lawyers should seek outside guidance to help with their cases.

Recorded live June 24, 2020.

Credit available through Oct. 31, 2021
