Why you should buy the International Issues in Family Law: The 1996 Hague Convention on the Protection of Children and Brussels IIa
In recent years there has been an increasing recognition of the international dimension of family proceedings before the courts of England and Wales. An international element can give rise to greater complexity, with a corresponding need for practitioners to be equipped to recognise and to properly deal with international issues in family proceedings. A missed step at any stage can lead to difficulties, including the possibility of delay, and potentially to a disadvantageous outcome for the client and for the subject child.
International Issues in Family Law: The 1996 Hague Convention on the Protection of Children and Brussels IIa (Jordan Publishing) aims to provide practitioners and judges of all levels with the information that they need to deal with international issues, in whatever context and whatever form they may arise, in all proceedings concerning children.
Though the book focuses on Brussels IIa and the 1996 Hague Convention on the Protection of Children, it also provides an overview of the legislation and Regulations that support the operation of these two vital international instruments, as well as providing important information and resources to assist in achieving effective cross-border co-operation and communication in family proceedings. The expert team of authors also identify the leading cases that assist in interpreting and applying their respective provisions and explain how practitioners can draw assistance from decided cases in other areas of law that address similar provisions within other international instruments.
