International Child Support Enforcement Lawyers | Based In Georgia, Serving Clients Worldwide

Enforcing child support within the United States is generally a smooth and straightforward process. Laws adopted by almost all 50 states streamline the process and eliminate the requirement for filing new child support cases in each state where enforcement is sought.

Enforcing support against a noncustodial parent who lives abroad, however, is far more complicated. Other countries will not automatically recognize a child support order issued by a U.S. court. Thus a new petition for child support must be filed in the foreign court, which will apply its own laws in deciding whether to grant and enforce child support.

Our Demonstrated Commitment To Pursuing Justice

Given the complexity of international child support cases, experienced legal counsel is critical for obtaining a successful outcome. The international family law practice at The Manely Firm, P.C., provides skilled and experienced representation in child support cases that cross international boundaries. Over the course of more than a decade, we have handled international family law cases on nearly every continent around the world. Lawyer Michael Manely obtained a favorable, unanimous decision for a client in an international family law case before the United States Supreme Court. He is the only family law attorney in the Southeast to have done so.

Our legal team is dedicated to securing justice for clients. We offer caring and practical legal guidance with an eye toward preserving and protecting clients' resources.

We are experienced in navigating the complicated issues that arise in international collection cases, from pursuing foreign court orders to finding hidden income and assets in offshore accounts.

Cutting-Edge Legal Developments

The body of law on international child support collection is still in developmental stages. A new treaty, the Hague Convention on the International Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance, would significantly streamline the process for enforcing and collecting child support in signatory nations. The U.S. and other nations are moving toward adopting this treaty.

Because our firm is devoted exclusively to family law, our attorneys remain on the cutting edge of the latest legal developments in the field. We also work with a network of lawyers around the world to facilitate the smooth and successful resolution of international child support cases.
