What Is International Child Abduction In Georgia?

Also known as international parental kidnapping, this occurs when a parent relocates from their home country without the knowledge or consent of the other legal parent. This action is a serious violation of the Hague Convention and international law.

The Hague Convention is an international treaty designed to protect children and their families from illegal foreign adoptions. Additionally, the Hague Convention aims to prevent the abduction, sale or trafficking of children by establishing legal procedures for the return of abducted children to their country of habitual residence. It also ensures all intercountry custody decisions are in the child’s best interests, through reciprocal agreements with other nations.

The United States is a party to the Hague Convention, along with more than 100 other countries. Therefore, it recognizes and upholds the principles outlined in the Convention, including protecting parental rights and the child’s best interests.

Whether seeking to have your child returned to the United States or defending against allegations of Hague Convention violations, Attorney Katz and his team can provide knowledgeable and effective legal representation. They always seek to prioritize the child’s best interest in any representation.
