What Constitutes Adequate Service of Process For DCS/Family Cases For Parents Domiciled and Living Outside the US?
Original Program Date :
In custody cases, both private and public (e.g., Arizona Department of Child Safety-involved dependency actions), what service of process does federal and state law require when a parent is domiciled, and lives, in another country? You may be surprised to learn that The Hague Service Convention, a federal treaty, requires litigants to take specific actions at specific times when suing non-US-national persons living in other countries, and if these actions are not taken, service is not complete; Arizona State law reflects substantially the same requirements. In this 60-minute CLE, you will learn these rules and procedures, including:
