Hague Members

Countries That are Signatories to the Hague Convention:

The United States is a party to an international treaty known as the “Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.”  There are numerous Hague treaties dealing with different topics. Service of process in foreign countries is one of them, authentication of Court Documents and Public Records Protocols, and Judicial Assistance are others…  The Hague Convention of 1980 deals with Child Abduction, Illegal Removals Or Legal Transfers of Children with the legal custodian parent under arts. 13b, 12.1 and 12.2, 3b, 5, and arts 14, 16, and 20 of the Convention.   If you are a legal custodian or parent with legal custody, granted by a Jurisdictional Court, and you and your children have been subjected to domestic violence recorded by jurisdictional courts, and the other parent has removed your child/ren taking him/her or them to a different country, you may have recourse if the other country is a signatory to the Hague Convention, and your child has not lived in the recipient country over a six month period.  That is why, if your child has been removed you need to act diligently and fast.
