When an international couple separates, their custody disputes may involve one parent’s decision to remove a child from his or her home country without the consent of the other parent. In such cases, the parent that wishes to bring the child back may be able to initiate the protections of the Hague Convention, a multilateral treaty that provides an efficient method to return a child who has been wrongfully removed from one country to another by a parent. The Hague Convention may be utilized only if the child custody claims are located in courts of countries that are members of the Hague Convention.
