Get to know our solutions below.
Family & International Successions
We work with all demands involving international family law, from marriage to estate planning and inheritance.
Social relations have long not been limited to only one state. We are increasingly seeing family constitutions of different nationalities and, as a result, simple issues such as adoption or divorce may require a closer and more specialized view. Therefore, we help people and their new family configurations to conquer their goals and achieve their aspirations.
We recognize and support the needs of each of our customers in a personalized way, helping them to solve bureaucratic obstacles through structured planning and technical knowledge.
Consultancy & Advisory of Private International Law
We work with demands that require experienced International Legal Consultancy & Advice, dealing with both existing difficulties and preventing the emergence of new problems.
Our International Legal Consulting & Advisory has a wide range of activities.
We provide a prevention service, aiming at saving time and financial resources. Our main purpose is to develop and assist individuals, governmental organizations and the public sector worldwide. Our work also focuses on assisting existing issues, such as demands before the Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Foreign judgments will only be effective in Brazil after the competent homologation process. For this reason, we represent the need of our national and foreign clients before the Superior Court of Justice (STJ) in order to gain legal legitimacy within Brazil from decisions rendered abroad.
Divorces abroad , international adoption, compliance with food court orders. All judicial procedures in other countries that require ratification by the Judiciary in order to be effective in national territory must be approved. After ratification before the STJ, our office will proceed with the execution of the foreign sentence in the competent Federal Court.
ALF has qualified professionals to represent the Brazilian or foreign citizen before the Superior Court of Justice in the most diverse types of actions for ratifying foreign judgments.
