From the State Department's Annual Report on International Child Abduction:
Brazil once again demonstrated a "pattern of noncompliance" in 2015 because:
-Thirty percent or more of the total abduction cases are unresolved abduction cases as defined by the Act; 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 Brazil. While the Department has a very productive relationship with the Brazilian Central Authority, delays in the courts, especially during the appeals process, prevent Brazil from fully upholding its obligations under the Convention.
To improve the resolution of abduction cases in Brazil, the Department recommends that the United States:
-Promote training with judicial and administrative authorities on the effective handling of international parental child abduction cases.
