Hague Abduction Convention in Force between Trinidad and U.S.

Posted by Jeremy Morley | Aug 02, 2013 | 0 Comments

The Hague Abduction Convention has now entered into effect, as of August 1, 2013, between the U.S. and Trinidad & Tobago, three months after the U.S. declared its acceptance of T&T's accession to the Convention.

Trinidad & Tobago became a party to the Hague Convention in 2000 but only in May did the State Department declare its acceptance of the process in place in that country to implement the Convention.

The Trinidad Central Authority, for purposes of the operation of the Convention, is the Civil Child Abduction Authority in the Ministry of the Attorney General.
