Family Law

International Relocations and the Hague Convention

The Court is authorized to allow a relocation of a parent and child to another country.  Often times, in making such a decision, the Court will want to know if the country to which the parent wishes to relocate is a signatory to the Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction enacted at the Hague on October 25, 1980.

If the country where the parent wishes to relocate with the child or children is not a signatory to the Hague Convention, then it may be more difficult for the other parent to enforce any timesharing or shared parental responsibility provisions of the relocation order.

If you are facing an international relocation issue, then it is vital that you have a lawyer experienced with such issues on your side.
