Judicial assistance

Judicial assistance

Judicial Assistance is the admittance and enforcement of a judicial order by a court from one jurisdiction to a court in another jurisdiction. [US State Department [http://travel.state.gov/law/info/judicial/judicial_691.html] (Giving a general description).] Such admittance requires a treaty between the governments of the two jurisdictions. [US State Department [http://travel.state.gov/law/info/judicial/judicial_691.html] (US as an example).] In common law jurisdictions, if a judicial assistance treaty is not in effect then the extra-jurisdictional order may be only admitted as evidence in separate litigation covering the same matter. [US State Department [http://travel.state.gov/law/info/judicial/judicial_691.html] (US practice as an example).]
