Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. As a result of its high level of immigration and emigration and its status as common source and destination for a large amount of international travel the United States has more incoming and outgoing international child abductions per year than any other country.To address this issue the United States played an active role in the drafting of the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (commonly referred to as the Hague Abduction Convention or simply the Abduction Convention.) Although the United States was one of the first nations to sign the Convention in 1981 the Convention did not enter into force until 1988 with the enactment by Congress of the International Child Abduction Remedies Act which translated the Convention into US law.show more
