Dealing with property overseas is difficult for family lawyers when they are not familiar with the legal system in other jurisdictions.  This session looks at which forum is appropriate to hear matters with foreign property and when Australian courts will have jurisdiction.   This session covers:

  • Determining which jurisdiction to file in – how do you make the call?

  • Can you have proceedings in multiple jurisdictions?

  • Powers of the court over international property

  • Managing property disputes when there are matters running in multiple jurisdictions

  • How can Australian orders be given affect in overseas jurisdictions?

  • How can overseas orders be given affect in Australia?

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
