All Family Law, All Around the WorldSM

Helping Parents Relocate Globally In Accordance With The Law

Because the society we live in today is so highly globalized, it is not uncommon to see individuals from two different countries enter into long-term relationships or marriages, and have children together. Unfortunately, this can create a number of problems when these relationships or marriages end, and matters of child custody are brought to the forefront. Both local and international laws will come into play, especially in cases that involve international relocation.

At The Manely Firm, P.C., we understand how domestic and international laws interact in divorce and child custody cases to ensure all applicable laws are followed and enforced. When you work with our team of family lawyers, you will have years of family law experience at your disposal. We have successfully resolved numerous international family law matters and can help you:

  • Understand the child custody implications of international relocation that are specific to your case
  • Recognize when a relocation is not authorized and is considered parental kidnapping
  • Explore the options that are available to you
  • Ensure that you go through the process legally, and avoid international child abduction charges
  • Locate resources to keep your ex-partner from leaving the country with your child

Ne Exeat Clauses

A “ne exeat clause” states that a noncustodial parent has a say in where there child lives, and can be found in divorce decrees, separation agreements, and child custody orders. Because these clauses are increasingly becoming law in other countries, it is many times the case that a custodial parent will need permission from the noncustodial parent to relocate with their child.
