Argentina: 2016 State Department Report

From the State Department's Annual Report on International Child Abduction:

Argentina demonstrated a "pattern of noncompliance" in 2015 because:

          -Thirty percent or more of the total abduction cases were unresolved; and

          -The judicial authority regularly failed to implement and comply with the provisions of the Convention.

The Convention is in force between the United States and Argentina. Delays in the enforcement and execution of return orders by the judiciary have prevented Argentina from upholding its obligations under the Convention.

To improve the resolution of abduction cases in Argentina, the State Department recommends:

          -Promotion of training with judicial and administrative authorities on the effective handling of international parental child abduction cases;

          -Promotion of the resolution of international parental child abduction cases with public diplomacy and outreach activities;

          -Participation in bilateral meetings with Argentine government officials to encourage Argentina to comply with its obligations under the Convention; and

          -Intensified engagement with the Argentine Central Authority for updates on international parental child abduction cases and to promote prompt case processing.
