Parental rights and responsibilities do not end at the water’s edge. In cases involving parental abduction, you may be able to recover or defend your rights using domestic and international law.
Such cases are not always easy to resolve, and reaching an outcome can take many weeks or months. As your attorney, I will organize resources, develop legal arguments and supporting evidence and argue your case vigorously in State and Federal courts in an effort to achieve your goals.
A Comprehensive, Strategic Effort
I take a strategic approach in family law cases. This can be especially beneficial in international parental abduction cases. In representing you, I will develop a comprehensive and strategic plan designed to assert and protect your custodial or visitation rights.
While each case is unique, this strategic plan might include these elements:
Locating your child – My firm will put the highest priority on locating your child, when this is an issue. An experienced professional investigator can assist in this effort.
Resolving the jurisdiction question – I have experience in Hague Convention cases and understand how to present persuasive arguments to U.S. courts regarding jurisdictional questions.
Developing evidence to support your case – Once jurisdiction has been established, the effort switches to the State family court. I have experience and a record of success in a wide range of contested child custody cases. I also work with psychologists and child development specialists who can provide persuasive evidence in support of your case.
Vigorous representation at all stages of the process – Cases involving parental kidnapping may be resolved through negotiation or mediation, but more likely assertive litigation will be required. I will work vigorously to locate your child and assert your custody or visitation rights.
I understand the importance you place on your child. My firm will do everything possible to protect your rights and achieve your goals.
