The Hague Convention & the Role of the Child’s Lawyer (RECORDING) 

Apr. 15, 2014
Online

Presented by the CBA Children’s Law Committee

Question: What happens when a child whose parents have separated is taken out of the country by one parent?
 
Answer: It depends, but the “best interest of the child” may not apply.
 
Counsel with extensive experience in Hague cases and a law professor who has been studying the Convention will discuss every parent’s and every family lawyer’s worst nightmare in our globalized society: a child who has been taken to a foreign jurisdiction. 

Join our experts and learn about:


•          the Hague Convention’s expedited process for returning children to their “habitual residence”;
•          the exceptions to the Hague Convention;
•          Article 13 of the Hague Convention and the child’s “voice but not a choice”;
•          The ethical role of counsel in representing the child in Hague Convention matters;
•          And more!

Speakers:
Nicholas Bala, Faculty of Law - Queen's University
