Custody disputes are often a serious result of a divorce case. It becomes very complicated when a parent removes a child or children from the home country and crosses into a foreign country without the other parent’s consent. This is where Gottfried Law comes into handle international child abduction and international child custody cases.
The US enacted the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction in 1980 in order to deter international child abduction and allow for a process of legal action to return the children back to the home country. This case goes into great detail about how Gottfried Law won the Dominguez v Duty case in order to return Dominguez’s three children back to Mexico, the respective home country.
