Family Law Around the World — June 19, 2014

On Thursday, June 19, 2014, top family law attorney Peter M. Walzer will be presenting to his fellow attorneys at the Beverly Hills Bar Association on the issue of ‘Family Law Around the World.’ Addressing what happens when a divorcing couple owns assets in multiple country, Peter will pontificate on prenups and marital regimes. A teaser of the type of hypothetical situations Peter will be discussing… Your client resides in her estate in Bel Air, owns a vacation home in the Swiss Alps, relaxes at her pied-á-terre in Paris, and abides at her estate in London.  Her husband works in Dubai and has business interests throughout Asia.  Their children attend boarding school in Italy. And let’s not forget the marital regime they elected prior to their marriage in Portugal. Questions of service of process, personal jurisdiction, support jurisdiction, custody jurisdiction, property jurisdiction, and jurisdiction over marital status challenge attorneys from the inception of these cases. Peter M. Walzer will discuss a gamut of issues from taxation to enforcement. Take this trip around the world through the eyes of a peripatetic divorce lawyer.
