Hague Convention

Representation in Cases Involving International Child Abduction

At Berg, Debele, DeSmidt & Rabuse, P.A., in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we represent parents whose children have been abducted, seeking to expedite their return to their home country, as well as parents with legal custody who are seeking to prevent the removal of their child via the Hague Convention. In all Hague Convention matters, our goal is to protect the best interest of the child and facilitate a solution in the court of jurisdiction.

The Hague Convention is a treaty the United States has entered into with several other countries. When a family is involved in an international child custody dispute, the Hague Convention will apply if both countries are parties to the treaty. The Hague Convention was designed to protect children from being wrongfully removed across international borders by providing an international procedure for the children's prompt return to their country of "habitual residence."
