About our international law blog

  • This site tracks developments in international family law from Richard Crouch and John Crouch of Crouch & Crouch in Arlington, Virginia. Our international practice has grown naturally from our location in our native Arlington, where our clients include many military, diplomatic and immigrant families, international organization employees, IT professionals, etc. This blog's purpose is to comment on the ongoing development of the law, and help other lawyers, journalists and the public understand individual cases. These postings do not provide a comprehensive description of the law. In fact, they will surely contain statements that were true at the time but have become less valid as the law continues to develop.

Nice start, but I can't search your blog and I don't see any way to email you. Since your site is on Intrnational Family Log, how about an article on the Sean Goldman case? Many bizarre twists and legal precedents being set. Abducted by mother, death of mother, custody awarded to politically connected step-father, father denied even visitation rights by local court, federal authorities unable to enforce Hague, deliberate delay tactics to increase child's "adaption to environment", now any lawyer who wants to circumvent Hague simply has to delay for a year.

This doesn't really surprise me. There are a lot of cases similar to this in Japan.
