International Separation, Divorce and Custody

Separation and divorce is a time of uncertainty. If your former spouse lives in a different country, you may be unsure of where to turn for help. The family law lawyers at MDW Law in Halifax have experience in international separations and divorces and can provide valuable advice and representation.

We determine the best steps for each client’s unique circumstances. We have experience determining which country’s law applies to a separation and divorce. If necessary, we will determine how to personally serve your former spouse with the divorce proceedings and work with an international agency to effect service.

We have experience in international custody disputes. We have worked on cases involving the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, an international treaty that provides a method to return a child internationally abducted by a parent. We also work with clients to arrange international access visits for children when parents reside in different countries. Please contact us at our Halifax or Bedford office to find out how we can help you.
