Can an Abuser Force My Child to Return to a Foreign Country?

Some victims of domestic violence in foreign countries are so desperate to escape the abuse, they leave in the middle of the night and seek asylum in the United States. Can the abusive parent come to the United States and demand his child be returned to his home country? The Hague Convention, an international treaty, gives local courts guidance on how to resolve these issues.

Looking for a Spanish speaking attorney to come join us at my firm. Please share or let me know if anyone is interested.
Paul Mickelsen produced results (no prosecution dismissals) on 3 charges for a family member which saved his professional career. Very satisifed with professional, competent, patient treatment of our case. Highly recommended.
I wrote a post of premarital agreements in Virginia. You can also make formal contract agreements with your spouse even if you aren't about to get married or divorce. Neat, right?
