Child custody cases can be extremely complex. These cases often involve many different elements, and when the case involves parents living in different countries, there are even more variables to consider and more jurisdictions that must cooperate in order to resolve the case.
A case involving international child custody across three countries started today in federal court. The case involves two twins, who are currently living in the United States with their father. The mother who is a Romanian national and resides in Romania but has U.S. citizenship, is fighting for custody after her former husband brought the children to the United States for a summer visit, but filed for divorce from his wife and sought full child custody.
