The Hague Abduction Convention
Select a format
The Convention operates in the U.S. in ways that differ from those in other Hague countries. This is because of the federal legislation that implements the treaty, the concurrence of federal and state jurisdiction, the lack of a specialized group of judges who handle cases under the Convention, the uniform state legislation on child custody jurisdiction, and a host of other factors.
When children are the subject of international family law disputes, the challenges are often great and emotions generally run high. Simply put, money can be divided but children cannot. This book is a must-have resource of any family law practitioner that wants to represent the best interests of his client and their heirs involved in a Hague case.
