"Expect a Surge" State Department Says of Pressure on Int'l Child Abduction

In a prior post titled Georgia Father Begs for Pressure on India to Join Hague Convention, we highlighted the problem of international child abduction that arises in many child custody cases across the nation. Parents and advocates have vehemently criticized the United States State Department for placing a lack of emphasis on the need to pressure countries like India and Japan, two of the most notorious non-signatories to the international Hague Convention that facilitates the return of children wrongfully removed from their country of residence by one parent.

Georgia Father Begs for Pressure on India to Join Hague Convention

A Georgia father feels anguish and frustration over the refusal by India to sign the Hauge Convention, a treaty that facilitates the return of children wrongfully removed from their country of residence. The father's 3-year-old daughter was taken back to India by his ex-wife during a child custody battle. He obtained a United States court order that granted him custody, but when it came time to enforce it, his children were in India, a country that does not recognize international parental abduction as a crime.
