In Seattle, Bellevue and surrounding areas, it is now common for married couples to be from other countries and have business or property interests both here and abroad. International divorce frequently involves challenging issues related to citizenship status, immigration law, relocation, unique parenting challenges due to cultural differences, and economic difficulties owing to unrecognized foreign education degrees and language barriers.
International divorce cases may also require thorough review and understanding of international treaties or other foreign laws. The Hague Convention on Child Abduction, for example, is an international treaty that governs abduction of children to foreign countries and return of the child.
