International Child Abduction and The Hague Convention
International child abduction affects thousands of children globally every year. In 1988, The United States adopted The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction in order to ensure that abducted children are immediately returned to their country of habitual residence. Ron Nelson, a close friend of our firm, writes an excellent article detailing this act. Anyone interested further in this topic is urged to check it out at: bit.ly/IMHGSJ.
Additionally, my article “The Hague Convention: Application and Analysis to Child Custody Issues” closely examines how this act will affect future child abduction cases.
