The Legal Work

In the United States and 50 other convention, there is an international treay called the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of Internantional Child Abduction. This treaty means that all and any memeber of this treaty will "provide an expeditious method to return a child taken from one member nation to another".

Although some countries have other agreements concerning abduction in addition to The Hague Convention, the United States doesn't. If a child is abducted to a country that is not a party to the Hague Convention or if the child was abducted before the country became a party, then the Hague Convention does not apply.
