Child migration and child movement cases are now more frequent and increasingly complex. In these cases, international and national cross border rules and regulations, and family and immigration laws and proceedings often intersect. This book features and explains these and associated international family treaties, regulations, rules, cases, guidance and policies. It is a practice guide highlighting the circumstances and experiences of children subject to these laws and litigation.
Whether you are an experienced practitioner or at entry level, this is an essential guide and reference to a complex area of law and practice.
