Handling International Child Custody and Divorce Cases in the State of Georgia
In this day and age, it is not uncommon for Americans to meet and have relationships with individuals from other countries worldwide. When military personnel are regularly stationed in other countries and jobs take individuals overseas on a routine basis, relationships quickly grow international in scope. As these relationships, like any other relationships, are not immune from separation and divorce, international child custody issues may arise in divorce cases more often than one might think.
In some cases, you may be facing a spouse who is a national of a foreign country and seeking to take your child overseas. In other cases, you may worry about setting up visitation between your child and your spouse who is now living in a foreign country. Whatever your concern may be, there are often laws in place that can help facilitate a Georgia child custody case, even those with complex international issues. However, if at any time you fear that your estranged spouse will remove your child from the country, you should take immediate action to prevent that action by contacting a qualified lawyer who has knowledge and experience with international family law.
