We Are Ready To Act Immediately On Your Behalf

We know from experience that time is of the essence, especially when the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction is involved. The Hague Convention is a treaty that provides for expeditious return of a child to their country of habitual residence. Between member countries of the treaty, “habitual residence” means the country the child resided in immediately before their disappearance. We also represent parents and children fleeing a difficult situation. Visit our FAQ on International Family Law.

Lawyers Laura Dale and John Ransom II are fluent in French and have extensive Hague Convention experience. Even if your country is not party to the Convention, we may be able to help you. Our legal team acts and plans knowing every second counts. We guide you through every step of the process to stack the chances of returning your child home in your favor.

Understanding The Hague Convention

The treaty accomplishes two very significant legal actions for nonabducting parents if petitioned and prosecuted correctly:

  1. Secures the prompt return of children wrongfully removed to or retained in another country
  2. Ensures that rights of custody and of access to children under the laws of one country are respected in another country

Our team is responsive to your needs and proactive in planning for and communicating with you. Our Houston international child custody attorneys have many invaluable connections and working relationships with overseas and out-of-state law firms, as well as with translators and interpreters.

We will help you prepare immediately to file a formal Hague Convention application, giving careful attention to detail and consideration to every nuance of your case. We will help you compile all supporting documentation and records, and we have the ability to make strategic, expedient decisions with you.
