The Hague Convention
The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction is an international treaty that returns jurisdiction over child custody matters to the country where the child “habitually resides.” At The Law Firm of Poppe & Associates, PLLC, we represent parents whose children have been unlawfully removed to foreign countries as well as parents with lawful custody who wish to relocate with the child to other Hague Convention or non-signatory countries.
In order for the Hague Convention to govern a child custody case, the child in question must be under the age of 16. Determining which country is the child’s “habitual residence” can be a contentious issue. In some case, the UCCJEA can help make that determination.
With extensive experience handling international child custody matters, including child abductions, our matrimonial attorneys will work to protect your rights and the rights of your child in these complex legal matters.

Managing Partner, Law Firm of Poppe & Associates, PLLC
Efficient, Reasonable, Sensitive and Professional
“I interviewed over 15 lawyers until I met Mia. I went to the first hour consultation and immediately I knew that she was the professional that should represent me in my divorce. My case, as probably many others, turned out from a simple case to a complicated one after my partner changed her mind over and over on our settlement agreement. Mia took the lead and closed my – over 2 year – process divorced in less than 5 months. Her team is capable, professional, smart and punctual. I fully recommend Mia and her firm.”
