Obtaining evidence abroad for use in US family law cases is a challenge that may be necessary when assets or witnesses are located outside the US. The Hague Evidence Convention allows for extrajudicial discovery for countries that are signatories, while other countries may not allow discovery or require different procedures. This program will discuss the opportunities and limitations on obtaining discovery internationally.
