Due to technological advances and growing industrialism, modern persons are becoming increasingly mobile, including parents and their children. In our mobile society some families have more than one residence in more than one state. This may cause complications in the courts during a family law case. When jurisdiction is questioned, the courts can move slowly and your rights to your children, your assets, and your ability to take your children out of the country may be put at risk.
Along with local jurisdiction disputes, families involved in a divorce or post-divorce action may find themselves involved with international disputes. Because of our global resources, Myres & Associates, PLLC routinely handles retention and abduction cases under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. If your partner has abducted and retained your child in another county, or you have fled with your child to Texas, schedule a consultation with our firm. Firm owner of Myres & Associates, PLLC, Susan Myres, has decades of experience handling international divorce cases and international custody cases. Susan will take the steps that protect your rights to child custody, visitation, and to secure your assets.
