Statue of LibertyWelcome to the USA Chapter homepage of the International Academy of Family Lawyers.

The IAFL is a worldwide association of practising lawyers who are recognised by their peers as the most experienced and expert family law specialists in their respective countries.

The Academy was formed in 1986, inspired in part by the success of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, an organisation founded in 1962 to improve the practice of law and administration of justice in the area of divorce and family law in the USA.

The primary objective of the Academy is to improve international family law practice throughout the world. It pursues that objective in a number of ways: creating a network of expertise in international family law around the world; providing its fellows with information about both international and national developments in the law; offering advice and assistance to the wider public; promoting law reform and, where possible, harmonisation of law.
