International Contract Drafting

A multi-jurisdictional family may need their settlement agreement recognized and enforced in a foreign country. The language in the document may need to reflect both the law in your U.S. state and in the foreign country. The agreement may need to be broken into multiple separate agreements, addressing topics individually, to help with future enforcement issues. There may also be other considerations, such as whether the child’s voice was heard in the agreement’s negotiation, and how.
