Our approach is generally to exhaust all settlement options and resolve issues amicably when possible while clearly communicating we are prepared to aggressively litigate our client's position. We work with experts to determine the facts from our client and potential witnesses. Careful preparation helps us negotiate from a position of strength to achieve optimal settlement results when possible.
Chudnovsky Law represents clients participating in family law mediation. The firm can coordinate selecting a mediator, consult with the client in the background of mediation or act as client's representative during mediation.
If settlement options are exhausted and litigation is required, we assemble a team suited to each client's unique needs. International clients who fall under more than one country's jurisdiction often require that we utilize and coordinate a corresponding attorney for the work in foreign countries.

International Family Law & The Hague Convention
For international family law cases that involve parents in located in different countries, international treaties such as the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction can come into play. More than 90 countries are signatories to the Hague Convention that specifies which court which will have jurisdiction. If the dispute involves the Hague Convention, usually it is the child's home country that has jurisdiction over the case.
