Understanding your rights across borders

International Family Law

In an increasingly global world, working with international family law is becoming more common. Yet these matters remain involved and complex. As experts in family law, Clancy & Triado has extensive experience working with overseas jurisdictions to protect and support the needs of our clients and their children.

Our international family law services include registering overseas orders with regard to children, property, child support, and maintenance to ensure they are recognised and enforceable in Australia;

If your case involves parties, children or property in different countries, we consider inter-jurisdictional issues such as assessing whether a person’s legal entitlements are best pursued in Australia, or in an alternative, more favourable jurisdiction. This can require careful, and often urgent, consideration of your personal family circumstances to assess whether and how to secure the better jurisdiction.

We regularly instruct overseas valuers and other experts on overseas superannuation interests, real estate, shareholdings, offshore accounts, interests in overseas companies etc.

As a highly regarded family law firm, Clancy & Triado has extensive connections with other lawyers and attorneys, investigators and valuers in various countries including New Zealand; Hong Kong; London; various states in the United States of America; as well as in European and Asian jurisdictions.
