Focus + Commitment

Are you looking for a Houston international custody attorney to handle your divorce or child custody/abduction dispute? The talented legal minds at Fullenweider Wilhite together have two centuries worth of legal expertise to share with their clients. We understand that international child custody cases can be quite complex and require a great deal of finesse.

When It Comes to Custody, Divorce, and Support, Your Rights Do Not Begin and End at A National Border

While based in Houston and Austin, Texas, Fullenweider Wilhite has the ability to help clients pursue and resolve divorces, custody, and support issues around the world. Several of our attorneys have become fellows in the International Academy of Family Lawyers. When needed, we can partner with law firms in other nations to resolve the marital or custody dispute.

Our firm has experience in handling international child custody cases and can help you understand your rights. These cases are typically handled pursuant to The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction – a treaty between the United States and other countries to determine the country with proper jurisdiction and to cooperate in returning children to their home countries. We have also assisted clients in custody disputes when the other nation involved was not a party to the Hague Convention treaty.
