International Relocation

Boulder based Family Law International Successfully Defends Mother in Hague Case allowing her daughter to remain with her in Denver.

Family Law International has once again successfully protected the rights of a child in another Hague case.

Mother and Daughter left Argentina for Mexico in August of 2007. Father and Mother entered into a protracted international child custody battle in Mexico from 2007 to 2009 and the Court awarded Mother full custody both at first instance and on appeal. In an attempt to give her daughter greater educational opportunities, Mother and Daughter relocated from Mexico to Denver, Colorado in 2010.

Father the decided to commence another international legal battle in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado combined with utilizing law enforcement which led to Mother and child being incarcerated (the child still remains in custody in another state). On Tuesday, March 15th 2011, Family Law International successfully ensured that the child remain here with Mother, her primary care giver. Father has returned to Argentina, and which brings to an end a four-year battle between the parties.

This case is a precedent setting in that the question before the judge was whether or not to recognize the prior litigation and judgments in Mexico.
