Trustworthy Family Law Guidance In Every Corner Of The Globe
Founding divorce and matrimonial lawyer Michael E. Manely spearheads our international family law and international family law appeals practice. Over the course of a decade, he has gained recognition all around Georgia and the world as a leader in the area of international family law.
In addition to his divorce and family law work throughout Georgia and the United States, Michael has handled matters to successful resolution on nearly all continents of the globe..
Although Michael travels to national and international destinations to represent our clients, our Georgia law firm also partners with foreign lawyers who are local to the countries in which we work. This gives our clients the advantage and helps us ensure that things run smoothly, both in the United States and abroad.
Attorney Michael Manely is the only lawyer in the United States practicing only family law to secure a unanimous decision for his client from the United States Supreme Court. See Chafin v. Chafin, 133 S. Ct. 1017.
When family law matters cross international boundaries, it is critical to work with experienced attorneys who are well equipped to handle all aspects of local and international family law. Your attorney must know how different legal processes work — like serving court documents or filing motions — in different countries.
From Canada to France, Mexico to Australia, our dedicated team of legal advocates is able to provide legal help on any family matter that involves international laws and procedures, including:
- Child custody under the Hague Convention
- Division of property across country borders
- Creation of international prenuptial agreements
- Enforcement of alimony and child support orders
- Requests for relocating with children
- Requests for traveling internationally with children
Our attorneys also have extensive experience handling parental kidnapping cases as well as negotiating with nations that are not part of the Hague Convention.
Our goal in representing you will be to efficiently handle your international family legal dispute in a manner that best fits your needs now and into the future.
