Hague Convention

The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, more commonly referred to as the ‘Hague Convention’ is a treaty that provides all member countries an easier route to securing the return of a child abducted by a parent from one member country to another.  The idea behind the convention is to maintain the status quo of the child arrangements that are already in place in the country of habitual residence.

The convention currently has 82 members, a list of which can be found here.
