WSLL Recommends: International family law desk book

Cross border family issues can be a complex mix of treaties, uniform acts, case law, and local laws. The International family law desk book, by attorney Ann Laquer Estin, discusses transnational litigation, marriage, divorce, parental rights, custody, child support, adoption, and child welfare.

Each chapter provides an overview of the subject area and relevant laws and treaties, with a focus on transnational family issues in the United States. Highlights include:
  • International judicial assistance, service of process, and discovery
  • Enforcing judgments
  • Marital consent and prohibitions
  • Parallel divorce proceedings
  • Marital agreements and financial or property orders
  • Child custody and access rights
  • Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA)
  • International child abduction
  • Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA)
  • Adoption procedures from Hague Convention countries and non-Convention countries
  • Children's immigration issues
The International family law desk book is available for checkout from the Wisconsin State Law Library.
