What about Parental Rights?
One of the most challenging custody clashes involves one parent’s choice to illegally remove a child from their home nation, or refuse to return the child from a foreign country after visiting there. In these types of cases, the parent that’s suffering the loss of the child may be able to invoke the protections of the Hague Convention in order to get relief from these traumatic circumstances.
In 1980, the United States wrote into law the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (also called the “Hague Convention”). This international treaty was in response to the out-of-control problem of international child abduction and later, was amended to contain wayward adoptions.
The Convention’s overall intention is to deter international child abduction and illegal adoptions and allow for a legal process for the quick return of abducted children back to their home countries, where the local courts can resolve custody issues based on their facts.
