Most people have likely heard of at least one international child custody dispute in the news. These cases can be very sensitive and require a great deal of understanding, knowledge and experience. In many cases, the non-custodial parent leaves the country with the couple’s child or children, which creates a unique child custody situation.
At Laura Dale & Associates PC, we have a great deal of experience in international child custody cases. These cases often involve the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction. Law enforcement can run into many roadblocks when trying to get children returned to the United States from another country. However, the Hague Convention allows courts in the two countries to work together.
If the children have been taken to a country that didn’t sign the Hague Convention, then the possible remedies to your child custody case can vary greatly.
