American families have become increasingly diverse and international. Today, married couples often come from two different countries, and may even have children born in others. Married couples or individual spouses may also have property or business interests in multiple foreign countries, or reside in multiple residences in different nations.
Because divorce and family law cases involving international issues are often more complex, they require the attention of attorneys experienced in these types of cases.
Although international divorce is becoming increasingly common in U.S. family law, few lawyers have experience with the international aspects of family law. Attorney David Starks of our firm is one of Washington State's most experienced international family law lawyers. David is one of a small number of U.S. family law attorneys whose practice includes international family law and treaties, including the various Hague Conventions on abduction, maintenance and the protection of children. He is also the co-author of the International Law chapter of the Washington State Bar Association's Family Law Deskbook and former co-chair of the American Bar Association International Law Section's Family Law Committee.
