Hague Convention Proceedings
In this multi-cultural, international world in which we now live children are often born to parents from different countries. When parties separate the question of where the children live becomes vital.
Children are sometimes removed from their homes by an absent parent and removed from the country in which they normally live.
The Hague Convention provides that children are returned to their “habitual country of residence”. This does not, unfortunately, happen without the intervention of the Court.
Hague Convention proceedings are emotionally exhausting for parents as a Judge will determine where your children will live, or in certain circumstances, will return children to what is considered their habitual country of residence for the courts in that country to determine where children should live.
