Honduras & International Child Abduction
The United States continues to view Honduras as noncompliant due to its ongoing failure to carry out its obligations under the Hague Convention.
Honduras demonstrated a pattern of noncompliance in 2015 because:
-The Honduran Central Authority regularly failed to fulfill its responsibilities pursuant to the Convention; 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 Honduras.
To improve the resolution of abduction cases in Honduras, the Department recommends that the United States:
-Intensify engagement with the Foreign Central Authority for updates on international parental child abduction cases and to promote prompt case processing, and
-Promote the resolution of international parental child abduction cases with public diplomacy activities.
