We live in an increasingly interconnected world. It is not uncommon for relationships to extend across borders. When this happens, there may be questions about which country’s law applies to different aspects of a relationship. For example, what happens if you’re married in a jurisdiction outside of Canada? Will Canada recognize the marriage? If you and your former partner no longer live in the same province or country, where should you file for divorce? How will you enforce a spousal or child support order made in a different province or country? Who gets to keep the vacation home you purchased overseas while you were still together? What about child custody and visitation when the parties live in different jurisdictions?
