Representing UN Employees In Their Family Law Disputes

Representing UN Employees In Their Family Law Disputes

Employees of international organizations, like the United Nations, have some of the most complicated legal issues that overlay family law disputes.  UN employees have highly technical benefits packages and may have different obligations when it comes to taxation which can impact their financial obligations to their families in the context of a domestic relationship dispute.  Questions sometimes arise as to whether UN employees have immunity in relation to their private legal obligations, including family law matters. How does a family lawyer work with a UN employee to resolve the issues in their family law case?  How does a family lawyer deal with family law cases where a UN employee is involved on the opposing side?  Panelists from the United Nations will share information about the organization, its structure, and the issues it sees its employees face when dealing with their private legal obligations, including family law matters.  They will provide useful and practical information for any lawyer who may work on a family law case involving a UN employee.
