Frost, Esq., partner in the matrimonial department of the law firm of Einhorn Harris Ascher Barbarito & Frost, PC, will be moderating a panel discussion on “Jurisdiction in Family Law Cases”, a seminar being provided by The New Jersey Institute of Continuing Legal Education.

The seminar is designed for attorneys who practice matrimonial and family law and focuses on the issues that occur when spouses or domestic partners who are going through divorce and custody issues actually reside in different states or even different countries.  The presentation will explore which courts in which states/countries control the issues in divorce and custody, from jurisdictional-divisible divorce to the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act, the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, the Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act and the Hague Convention.  The seminar will also include information about bankruptcy issues which may arise.
