What Is The Hague Convention?
The Hague Convention is an internationally recognized treaty that establishes standards for international adoptions and allows for the return of jurisdiction in international abduction cases. According to the treaty, jurisdiction will be returned to the country where the child habitually resides. Many international child abduction cases use the Hague Convention to return children to the United States where proper hearings can be held regarding international child custody.
We Have Experience With Hague Cases
Despite the straightforward nature of the treaty, Hague Convention cases can be highly complex and contentious, resulting in prolonged litigation if not handled properly by a knowledgeable attorney. It is rare to find a law firm that has encountered international child abductions, understands the Hague Convention, and has successfully reunited parents and children.
Our lawyer, Philip J. Schipani, has handled these cases and understands what it takes to efficiently achieve results that protect the rights of parents and the best interests of children. We know the many steps necessary to establish jurisdiction and eventually return the child to the United States.
