Parents often are confounded by the complex legal processes necessary to fight for their children in domestic and foreign courts and governments.  This is not a fight parents can win without experienced, sound legal counsel and resources to press the case. 

Join our expert attorneys for a dialogue on legal challenges and opportunities for reuniting children with parents, the complex interactions of domestic and foreign courts and governments, nations' adherence to the Hague Convention on International Parental Child Abduction, and the necessity of international cooperation to prevent and resolve IPCA.
