Due to the international mobility of people and the diversity of unions, family relations are often international. This wealth can become a source of very complex litigation that generates questions of jurisdiction (which is the competent national court) and of the law applicable to the litigation.
International family law applies as soon as an element of extraterrestriality is present in a family: spouses of different nationalities, ownership of property abroad, establishment of parentage abroad, international adoption.
Disputes related to this matter can then be very diverse: law applicable to divorce or separation, marriage contract or succession, determination of the competent judge, parentage, adoption, parental authority and abduction International.
In addition, there are many sources of domestic, European and international law: the French civil code, foreign national laws, European Union regulations, the European Convention on Human Rights, the Convention on New York on the rights of the child, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and many Hague Convention.
The technicality of this part of the law requires the intervention of a specialized lawyer such as Mr. THUAN Dit DIEUDONNÉ WHO will accompany you in your steps thanks to the expertise he has developed before both national and international courts.
In particular, Mr. THUAN Dit DIEUDONNÉ has developed a detailed and genuine expertise on the issues of family law in Germany and the intervention of the Jugendamt (Youth Service), which too often encounters very often foreign parents during a divorce or separation. See about it:
– his oral speech at the press conference on 29 May 2018 on Jugendamt’s practices and the German family system in the European Parliament – Plenary session.
