INTERNATIONAL CHILD ABDUCTION IN THE USA


The United States is a party to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.

We handle many applications by foreign parents whose children have been abducted to the United States.

We also represent many parents who have brought their children into the United States for good reason from a foreign jurisdiction and who face claims of child abduction.

It is important to note that the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, applicable throughout the United States treats foreign countries as if they were sister states in the USA. This can be of critical significance in the case of child abductions into the United States.

In child abduction cases speed is of the essence, whether in prosecuting or defending a claim.
