International Child Abduction and Parental Kidnapping
(HAGUE Return Petition)

As international child abduction lawyers, we represent parents who are filing a petition or defending against a petition in the United States for the return of a minor child pursuant to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. The Hague Convention is a treaty that was created to protect children by designing an international procedure for the prompt return to their country of habitual residence so that issues regarding child custody may be determined by their local courts. In the United States, the Hague Convention is implemented under the International Child Abduction Remedies Act (ICARA), 22 USC § 9001 et. seq.
