Partner Ramina Dehkhoda-Steele presented the CLE seminar, “International Family Law: Affidavits of Support as Enforceable Contracts” in partnership with the International Practice Section of the Washington State Bar Association on October 23, 2014. The seminar was held at the office of Wong Fleming in Bellevue, Washington. Ms. Dehkhoda-Steele discussed the specific intersection of international law, immigration law and family law-in particular, affidavits of support as enforceable contracts separate from spousal maintenance.
The International Practice Section of the Washington State Bar Association was founded in 1984. This section has a broad focus that includes not only the study of current developments in the field of international law, but also immigration law, international transactional work, and international litigation or arbitration.
