Navigating International Child Custody Matters
When it comes to international child custody issues, the Hague Convention typically governs such matters.
Countries that have signed the Hague Convention ensure:
- Custody and access rights under each country’s laws are observed
- The timely return of children who were wrongfully retained or removed
Additionally, countries that have signed the Hague Convention agree to take the necessary actions to secure the intention of the treaty and must be committed to implementing those procedures as efficiently as possible.
Moreover, under the Hague Convention, the removal of a child is wrongful in situations where:
- At the time of the removal, custodial rights were exercised or could have been exercised if the child was not removed.
- The removal of the child violated the rights of a person or entity under the laws of the country or state where the child was residing prior to the removal.
One of the biggest elements of the Hague Convention is that its signatory countries agreed to cooperate with each other, though the extent of that cooperation depends on the country.
If you are dealing with an international child custody matter, do not hesitate to consult with an experienced member of our legal team to discuss the details of your case.
