Thank You for Visiting Our Website
Please note, this project does not provide legal advice.
If you are seeking information about a child abduction case in a U.S. court, it is important that you speak to an attorney and/or a domestic violence victim advocate. On this website you can find information about what victims should know about the Hague Convention, a brief overview of the Hague Convention and defenses to return, resources for survivors of domestic violence, and safety tips for using your computer when seeking help.
If you are represented by an attorney or are working with a domestic violence victim advocate, our Practice Guide for attorneys and advocates is now available. Have your attorney or advocate request a copy of the Practice Guide.
If you seeking information about a case where a child or children have been removed from the United States please visit the U.S. Department of State's website for information.
