Family Law matters are often not solely contained within Queensland. Often we find that matters get more complicated as you have partners and third parties coming from other states – and especially when you have International Disputes.
At Phoenix Law, our Family law team is experienced in dealing with family law matters that have international dimensions. This may include separations where one partner is located overseas, it could include international property, or it may involve children being taken overseas.
One particularly difficult circumstance that we advise on is where one parent takes a child overseas without the permission of the other parent. If the parties are going through a separation this can often be construed as kidnapping, but due to the international nature it can be very complicated to resolve. There is a special part of the law that deals with these international disputes, called Hague convention matters, where professional legal teams can negotiate internationally in order to resolve the issues and ensure that the child is protected and try to open up communication again.
If you are experiencing family law issues in Queensland, and believe that there are international problems as well, then you need to get advice with experienced legal professionals like the Phoenix Family Law team.
