Thanks to our partner, Leslie Spoltore, in Delaware, we have a consolidated blog entry for our previous articles on international custody. The Hague Conventions on child custody can be difficult to navigate and we are fortunate to have attorneys with experience dealing with them. It is important to remember that travel to a signatory county of a Hague Convention does not mean the country has ratified the convention as a treaty. If you think that you may have a custody issue arising elsewhere in the world, consult with an attorney immediately since timing often becomes a critical element to success.
