Capable Legal Representation In International Child Custody Matters
Resolving child custody issues in the context of divorce can be challenging and emotional. When those issues transcend state or country lines and involve jurisdictions of different states and countries, there is heightened level of complexity. When those issues arise due to a parental abduction, a dispute oftentimes becomes a crisis.
At the Lauzon Paluch, we have the experience necessary to handle any custody matter that involves national and international jurisdictions. Our Los Angeles international custody lawyers and staff bring the skill and knowledge from 47 years of combined experience of handling complex custody cases.
Fighting For You Across The Globe
Across the United States and in countries like Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Turkey and Uruguay, we are successful in negotiation and litigation of custody disputes.
When the ability to maintain a meaningful relationship with your children depends on your ability to fight across state and national borders, we can help. Peter Lauzon is an expert in international child custody and abduction laws, including the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
We assist clients throughout Southern California with cases involving:
- Wrongful retention: one parent takes the child out of state with consent, but does not return
- Wrongful removal: taking the child out of the state or country without consent (kidnapping)
- Child custody disputes involving different states or countries
Our firm works within the Hague Convention provisions to assist parents whose children are taken locally or abroad. We have the international contacts, including foreign attorneys, U.S. state and government authorities, and other professionals to assist in the complex process of returning children to their homes.
