Child custody and international abduction

New York parents may benefit from learning that there are laws in place regarding scenarios in which one parent abducts a child and leaves the United States. The U.S. is a signatory to the Hague Abduction Convention, a treaty that provides a legal framework by which children may be returned home. Here, "home" means the United States, their country of habitual residence. The laws of the country where the child normally resides should be the ones determining matters of visitation and custody, according to the Convention.
