Hague Convention

International Child Abduction is normally committed by another parent. Fortunately, there is an international treaty, the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. This Convention is honoured by most countries in the world, including by all the Provinces and Territories in Canada, and the Canadian government, that with the assistance of experienced lawyers, works very well in recovering such abducted children in most cases.
