Extensive Experience In International Custody And Abduction Cases
These cases are often resolved under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, a treaty that provides a process for returning wrongfully removed and/or retained children to their countries of habitual residence.
Our firm has a long history and extensive experience in international child abduction cases and cases brought under the Hague Convention. This treaty is critical in helping a “left-behind-parent” secure the prompt return of a child to their country of habitual residence and restore the status quo. In addition, the treaty can be used to provide access to a child when access is being denied by the parent who is in possession of the child.
There are other remedies available under the Uniform Child-Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) and the Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act (PKPA). There is no substitution for experience when your children have been abducted.
