Episode 38. The Hague Convention with Carolina Marín Pedreño

The Hague convention is something that affects many LBP’s who are trying to seek the return of abducted children. But What it it and how does it work? This Week I’m pleased to bring you my interview with Carolina Marin Pedreno. Carolina is a Spanish Abogado, who cross-qualified as a Solicitor in 2006. She is known as a “go-to practitioner for cross-border work involving both public and private children cases”.She specialises in international cases particularly child abduction, registration and enforcement of foreign contact orders, leave to remove, residence, contact and public law cases. Carolina is a frequent lecturer and author on family law and has been interviewed by the press on many occasions.

  1. Here are some tips for attorneys and clients faced with instituting or defending child abduction proceedings under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, whether in the United States or internationally.

    In a nutshell, a Hague Convention application may be made when a child is taken or retained across an international border, away from his or her habitual residence, without the consent of a parent who has rights of custody under the law of the habitual residence, if the two countries are parties to the Convention. The child must be promptly returned to the habitual residence unless the return will create a grave risk of harm to the child or another limited exception is established.

  2. The International Parental Abduction Association (IPAA) started life in 2008, as a parent support network formed by one parent, Dawn Willson, who now works with other parents all trying to navigate their way through the legal minefield of international parental child abduction. We have never received charity funds nor taken money for the services we provide, but that is about to change in 2018. Over the years we evolved and developed into an information and resource centre. Initially starting out as the International Parental Abduction Network, in 2017 we changed our name to the International Parental Abduction Association and are now recognized as the leading organization and authority, in the U.S. in international parental child abduction and the movement of children across international borders.
