International child custody and abduction cases are hard. They are also important, stimulating and challenging. In this program, attorney Jeremy Morley will delve into this complex topic.
Some of the issues to be discussed include: Which law applies? Are foreign custody orders enforceable? How to prevent a potential abduction? How to recover a child from a non-Hague country? How does the Hague Abduction Convention work in the U.S.? Should you proceed instead under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction & Enforcement Act? What if the foreign law violates human rights?

this lecture was excellent
The presenter really knew his stuff. It compares well with CA laws and our application of the Hague. Thank you.
This was a great intro course for international child adoption.
I thought the speaker was very good. I have not had to deal with this topic yet in my practice but I found the topic interesting and a lot of my clients have had these concerns which is why I wanted to listen to the presentation. I believe this gave me a good basic knowledge to work from. Thank you.
Thanks, great info!
I have not encountered a matter which involved the Hague Convention but this was very informative in case i ever do encounter a situation such as the professor/attorney described in the webinar.
Outstanding! Thank you.
Very interesting subject, wish their was more time.
Very interesting course and well presented.
speaker was really good and made it interesting
The instructor and course material were both very interesting.
The speaker made avery complicated and evolving area of law very clear. He is an outstanding speaker.
This is a very timely CLE as the world has grown so much smaller. The advice regarding obtaining "mirror court orders/child custody agreements" filed prior to any travel abroad with children is advice that seems likely to go a long way in heading off problems.
