About the hague convention
The convention is an international treaty that provides safeguards for protecting the children from wrongful retention away from their habitual residence. It also provides measures to return the child to his or her respective habitual residence when they are abducted and taken to country that is a signatory of this convention. Since the convention is applicable to the signatories thus it is important to know whether your country and the country to which the child is taken falls under the convention’s signatory list or not.
However, if the child is taken to the non-signatory countries then it is going to very much difficult to get them back because the convention will not be applicable there. Since the convention is applicable in case of wrongful retention so what does the word “wrongful retention” means according the convention. So, the retention or removal of children is wrongful when:
Here, old and mature enough means the child is above 12 or 13 years old. However, the other meaning of mature is considered according to the particular case.
The hague convention is structured in very specific ways so that it can prevent children from being abducted by their parents to other countries. The convention requires court in the signatories’ country for the proceedings of child abduction as per convention. The abducted children have to be present in the court for further proceeding of the case. There shall be a central authority in every signatory country to deal with the case. Moreover, there shall be a specific lawyer to deal with such case therefore selection of lawyer should be done carefully. The lawyer should not be unaware of the convention and its rules. However, if you belong from New Jersey then don’t hire Patricia. E. Apy for such task. She is not responsive, less capable and is not perfect for dealing with hague convention as she has lost most of such cases earlier. Rather, prefer hiring Martiza Rodriquez who is best known lawyer for dealing with child abduction cases.
The entire process may take some time and the complete process will be handled by the lawyer and the government thus it is essential to hire a responsible lawyer and not like Patricia. E. Apy.
