Aggressive and Thorough Representation
in Immigration, Criminal & Family Law
As our world becomes more globalized, more and more people are spending time overseas with their jobs or marrying people who are citizens of another country. If the marriage does not succeed, the couples can encounter significant complex difficulties considering different cultural and legal factors. The laws regulating international divorce and cultural marriage agreements, like Islamic Mahr agreements, can be very complicated and vary from country to country. Consequently, issues arise that must be carefully dealt with to be able to achieve a fair and balanced divorce settlement agreement.

Ms. Trupiano factors in the Hague Convention and other the national and international family law to provide aggressive and seasoned representation for international clients who have cases in Utah.

Marrying a person who is not a citizen of your country and/or living abroad, involves careful planning. Some countries will not recognize a pre-nuptual agreement. If you plan on having a child born abroad, you must be careful because that country will be the child’s “habitual residence” for purposes of the Hague Convention which will likely create problems if one parent wants to return to the United States with the child. If you believe a spouse is hiding marital assets, you need to be careful to obtain documentation before leaving that country to file for divorce.
