ABA Section of International Law: Conference in Seattle – June 19-21, 2014

Categories: Uncategorized

The ABA Section of International Law invites you to attend the “International Families: Money, Children, and Long Term Planning” Conference to be held from June 19-21, 2014 at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle, Washington.  It is more common today than ever before that a person will marry someone from another country, culture, or religion.  These “international families” have unique problems not found in a traditional domestic family. Building on the success of the Section’s 2012 program on international family law,  this conference will guide U.S. and foreign lawyers in representing international families through a myriad of issues, including issues related to property, money, children, and long term planning, particularly as it relates to cases in Asia.

Program Topics Include:
•       Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments and Orders in Asia
•       Domestic Violence Allegations in International Family Cases
•       Primer on Asian Family Law
•       Immigration and Its Impact on International Family Law
•       Military Families in the Asia-Pacific
•       Finding Hidden Overseas Assets
•       Estate Planning for Families that Span Two Continents
•       The Implementation and Future of the 1996 Hague Child Protection Convention in the U.S.
•       The Promise of the 1980 Hague Child Abduction Convention in Asia
