About our international law blog

  • This site tracks developments in international family law from Richard Crouch and John Crouch of Crouch & Crouch in Arlington, Virginia. Our international practice has grown naturally from our location in our native Arlington, where our clients include many military, diplomatic and immigrant families, international organization employees, IT professionals, etc. This blog's purpose is to comment on the ongoing development of the law, and help other lawyers, journalists and the public understand individual cases. These postings do not provide a comprehensive description of the law. In fact, they will surely contain statements that were true at the time but have become less valid as the law continues to develop.

I am not sure why this information about the new judiciail resources available to judges ruling on Hague cases regarding international child abduction has not been brought to the public's attention more clearly. This is a very, very big step ... as one of the biggest legal problems for Chasing Parents is an uninformed judge and an judicial system that does not direct and implement plausible rulings.

Clearly, this is a step in the right direction.

PLEASE READ! Oregon DHS wants to terminate my sister's parental rights and put my 11 year old nephew (a Canadian Citizen) up for adoption, and we feel they are ignoring the Hague Convention. We're desperately trying to get him returned to Canada. Please help!
