International Academy of Family Lawyers

Founded in 1986, The International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL) is a non-profit organization that serves many of the best family lawyers in the United States and across the world. In 2015 the IAML Board of Governors changed the name of the organization from the "International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers" to the "International Academy of Family Lawyers."

The IAFL maintains a directory of fellows to help the public find an International Family Lawyer based on search criteria that include practice area, country, state, city, firm name, lawyer's name, or language spoken.
