The United States is home to many individuals born in other countries and of dual nationalities. This can become difficult in divorce and Child Custody and Parental Relocation matters. Some individuals make threats, and make good on threats, to take their children out of the United States – sometimes never to be seen again. What if this is happening to you?
Laws regarding international kidnapping are governed by the Hague Convention. This is an international treaty. Each country that signs the treaty is supposed to be bound by the laws set forth therein. The first step one must take if their child is taken from the United States is to determine if the receiving country is a signatory to the Hague Convention. If so, what can you do to bring your child back?
