Houston Hague Convention Attorney

The Hague Convention is an international meeting of several like-minded nations looking to improve cooperation when it comes to complex legal scenarios. Since The Hague Convention began, a number of conventions have been adopted and ratified by the member nations, particularly regarding international adoption and civil international kidnapping cases. These specific conventions lay out the rules that U.S. citizens looking to solve family law problems abroad must abide by and can use. The resolutions provided from these meetings establish a legal uniformity across member nations and work to improve fairness under these complex legal circumstances.

Using The Hague Convention for Legal Solutions

When a parent or guardian faces problems with international adoption or international kidnapping, they likely will need to work through or use the processes established by The Hague Conventions relative to those concerns. However, these conventions can be complex and intricate, making many people seek out the support of a legal professional. An attorney may be able to provide the following help:

  • Handling any international or State Department paperwork
  • Providing advisement and explanations of what laws or rules are used in the case
  • Representing their client in a trial
  • Establishing necessary connections locally or abroad to facilitate a solution

Although these conventions are meant to provide a simpler and more effective legal framework when dealing with international or family law, these cases may prove overwhelmingly complicated.
