News: Non-compliant Hague Countries Report

What is this about Hague Countries? These are countries that have signed a treaty over international family law matters. Not something I am likely to see but still an important thing to know about.

Australian Divorce Blog posted Non-compliant Hague countries: US State Dept report and I think is worth passing along:

"The State Department has recently released its 2009 report, and it's enlightening reading. This year, there are two categories: non-compliant countries and countries with patterns of concern.

Australia was not named and shamed. There were 26 children allegedly abducted or removed from the US to Australia, and 14 from Australia to the US."
The full report is here (PDF format)
