Hague Abduction Convention Victory in France

Jeremy Morley*
We are delighted that, working with our esteemed colleagues in France, we succeeded in securing a ruling yesterday from the French Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris in favor of our client in New Jersey, USA that the parties’ child must be returned home to New Jersey and that the child’s mother must pay significant costs.
In other cases there have been serious difficulties in France with the enforcement of such Hague Convention return orders and we hope that nonetheless the child in this case will be returned forthwith.
*We handle many international family law matters between the United States and France, always acting with local counsel in France and other U.S. states as appropriate.
