Turkish Family Law



I had the great pleasure and privilege recently of addressing the First Turkish-American Lawyers Conference at New York Law School on the topic of  “Turkey and International Family Law.”
My particular focus was on Turkey and international child custody matters, especially:

-Relocation of children from Turkey to the United States.

-The recovery of children abducted from Turkey to the United States, focusing on the Hague Convention and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction & Enforcement Act.

-Preventing the abduction of Children to Turkey.

-Securing permission for children to visit Turkey.

-Recovery of children abducted from the United States to Turkey.

-The use of expert witness on Turkey’s family law in such cases.
