About the Hague Abduction Convention

The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction of Oct. 25, 1980, is a multilateral treaty that expressly addresses international abductions and specifies remedies. The goal of the treaty is to provide clear guidance on what should happen if there are issues concerning the custody of the children when the parents live in different countries.

Despite these efforts, there is much red tape in these cases. In some situations, there may be countries that are not covered under the treaty, which will lead to even more confusion about what may happen in a custody dispute.

Some of the various issues that we handle in these types of cases include:

  • Child abductions
  • Wrongful detention (a refusal to return a child to the U.S. after a visitation abroad)
  • Legitimate interstate custody disputes under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA)
  • Asylum cases in which an abused child is kidnapped to the U.S.
  • Petitions for international or cross-country parent relocation
  • Custody modifications in which parents live in separate states or countries
