Preventing your children from leaving the country

Divorce attorneys see clients with legitimate concerns about letting a foreign national ex-spouse take their children for a trip overseas. This is not an issue of time-sharing; first and foremost, it’s a question of whether you’ll ever see your children again. In many cases, an innocent trip is a ruse to gain permanent custody over the children. In other cases, your ex-spouse’s nation of origin may simply be too dangerous to ensure your children’s safe return. Just like a parent who opposes having their children relocate out of state, you have the right to custody or visitation, which the court will uphold in the best interests of your children. However, you cannot assume that the court knows the basis for your fear or agrees with it. Arthur D. Lake is a capable litigator who can represent your case in the most persuasive and effective manner.
