Safeguarding children and other thoughts

Hi there,

I have done a number of international child custody cases and one thing I know for sure is you DO NOT want your children to ever, ever be remotely involved in such a matter. If you are married, or were married to someone who holds citizenship in another country or who works abroad, this can be a concern.  I just read a terrific article in the Ohio Family Law Blog by Shawn Hooks, which gives some good information and a terrific link to help parents who might have a problem.

Also, I can’t believe how convoluted family law has gotten in this transgendered age.  I was amused to read this article about Texas interpretation of gender.

And finally, in a scandal that would have resulted in political death in the U.S., the Italian prime minister is finally divorced.
