International Child Abduction Under The Hague Convention

What Is The Hague Convention?

In contentious divorce scenarios, a parent may unlawfully relocate their child to another country, triggering a complex legal process.

It aims to uphold child custody agreements, prevent international abductions, and facilitate the return of abducted children to their rightful custody.
