Singapore and The Hague Convention

With effect from May 1, 2012, the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction has entered into force between the United States and Singapore. This means that if a wrongful taking or retention of a child from Singapore to the United States or from the United States to Singapore occurred on or after May 1, 2012 the Hague Convention may be used to secure the child's return. We work on many U.S. - Singapore child abduction and child custody matters.
