The Office of the Head of International Family Justice for England & Wales (created in 2005) has advised on ‘The need for all involved in family law to integrate a transnational mindset into their approach to resolving cases …, especially given globalisation, increasing movement of persons across borders, and the ever rising number of family units which are truly international.’

Child Migration: International Family and Immigration Laws serves to fill that need and gap for a practical text combining cross-disciplinary and jurisdictional issues of the interaction between immigration and family law in relation to the movement of children.

This title is of relevance to lawyers dealing with stranded, separated, unaccompanied, adopted, surrogate born, abducted and migrant or refugee children need to know and understand the relevant family and immigration law options and implications. Child Migration: International Family and Immigration Laws has a practical focus providing the detail, case authority, international guidance and practical experience with the case contexts in which these issues arise. The authors include regular sections where following an exposition on the law; they then address the issues by reference to model case facts.

It features the core international (UN, Council of Europe, HCCH) and EU family directives, UK wide and English and Scottish family laws, UK wide English and Scottish cases and guidance as well as nationality and immigration laws, rules and policies including:

  • The Immigration Act 2016
  • Immigration Rules 2016
  • Human Fertilisation and Embryology Acts 1990 and 2008
  • British Nationality Act 1981
  • The Children Act 1989
  • The Hague Convention on the Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Inter-country Adoption (Convention)
  • European Convention on Human Rights (as amended)
Child Migration: International Family and Immigration Laws is an essential guide to this complex area of law for both practitioners at entry level and experienced practitioners.
