Parental Kidnapping: the Law & Your Rights

The loss of a child is devastating, especially when a parent takes a child across international borders. Various legal complications make it very difficult to ensure that a child is returned home safely.

Attorney Stuart House has the necessary experience in handling complex cases involving parental kidnapping and using The Hague Convention to ensure that your rights and your child's best interests are secured.

What Is the Hague Convention?

The Hague Convention is an international agreement which, among other things, seeks to address the problem of parental kidnapping. In pertinent part, the Convention provides for the return of a child who has been wrongfully removed by one parent in violation of an established custody arrangement.

The procedure is then to return the child to their home country until officials arrange a final custody and visitation determination. Countries that are signatories to the Hague Convention include, but are not limited to:

  • Canada
  • Mexico
  • Australia
  • Costa Rica
  • Chile
  • Argentina
  • Bermuda
  • Cayman Islands
  • Germany
  • France
  • Colombia
  • Dominican Republic
  • Greece
  • Israel
  • Honduras
  • Bahamas
  • Spain
  • South Africa
  • United Kingdom
  • United States
  • Brazil

How We Can Help You Fight Back

We will provide aggressive and strategic support in cases involving:

  • Defense of child-removal;
  • representation for return of a child;
  • unfair charges of child abduction.

Parental kidnapping cases can be complicated and incredibly challenging and require an in-depth knowledge of state, federal, and international law. Attorney Stuart House has a track record of successfully securing the return of children from as far away as South Africa, and is committed to vigorously protecting the rights of parents and children in the United States and internationally.

Defending Parents Accused of Kidnapping

You may need aggressive and strategic defense to protect your rights and your child if you have removed your child from the state or the country. Many allegations of child "kidnapping" cases are unfounded, but require the advocacy of an experienced attorney when an action gets filed under the Hague Convention.

From the initiation of your case, we will work closely with authorities to enforce provisions of the Hague Convention and use both state and federal law to ensure that your child is returned safely. Our Fort Lauderdale parental kidnapping attorney has experience working with relevant government agencies as well as other foreign government entities to secure the rights and interests of our clients and their children.
