Hague Abduction Convention

Practical Issues and Procedures for Family Lawyers

Book Description

Handling Hague abduction cases is challenging and fulfilling. Although Hague cases are tried very quickly, they still require an intimate knowledge of the Convention and of the voluminous case law that has developed around it. Hague cases also require a complete understanding of international child custody law in general and in particular, for U.S. practitioners, of the relationship between The Hague Convention and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction & Enforcement Act.

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.
