Felicity Northcott and Ann Estin to Discuss International Cases at AAHHSA Conference
Baltimore, MD, (October 26, 2016) – Felicity Sackville Northcott, Director of External Partnerships and International Services, and Board Member Ann Laquer Estin, Aliber Family Chair in Law at the University of Iowa College of Law, will speak at The American Association of Health and Human Services Attorneys (AAHHSA) (formerly AAPWA) Annual National Conference.
Felicity and Ann will speak during the session: Strategies for Resolving Cases Straddling International Borders. This panel will examine unique legal issues that arise during cross-border cases such as when one or both parents of a child who enters the foster care system live in another country, or when a U.S. citizen child returned from overseas must be placed in foster care. Felicity and Ann will discuss issues such as the availability of international judicial assistance, the obtaining of evidence and legalization of foreign documents, consular notification and the role of foreign consul, and how International Social Service USA and the global network can aid in resolving complex cross border cases.
