In August 2016, President Obama signed the instrument of ratification for the Hague Convention on International Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance.
While the United States has child support enforcement well in hand, the same has not been true in other countries. The Convention’s purpose is to assist custodial parents in enforcement proceedings in their state courts for collection of financial support due from parents residing outside of the United States.
The Convention, also contains groundbreaking provisions to establish uniform, efficient and inexpensive procedures for processing international child support cases.
