Can you give me a list of countries that have a very good track record of returning children to the United States

Asked 7 months ago - New York, NY

Can you give me a list of countries that have a very good track record of returning children to the United States, that were taken/retained in violation of US child custody orders? Can you give me a list of countries that have a very bad track record never return children to the United States? There are countries that are Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction that do not return children to the United States. There are countries that are not party Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, that return children to the United States.

    Answered . Wrong question. It should be, "Which countries' court systems facilitate return or block return based upon adherence to local policy and interpretation of the Hague Convention?"

    That no one knows. You take your chances in every case.

    Good luck.

    Answered . I don't think any attorney in this field has dealt with enough international child custody cases so as to do a comparative analysis amongst even the 40+ signatories on The Hague Convention. You're probably best off scheduling a consultation with a NYC Child Custody attorney & presenting your situation to him/her for a full assessment.
