The 1996 Hague Convention comes into force in the United Kingdom on 1 November 2012 and is intended to improve the protection of children in international situations.
It provides for the recognition and enforcement within all Contracting States of widely defined measures directed to the protection of a child’s person and property and aims to establish the necessary co-operation between the authorities of such States in order to achieve this purpose.
To that end, the ambit of the Convention extends to parental responsibility orders, the appointment of guardians and special guardians, residence, contact, specific issue and prohibited steps orders, and also care and supervision orders.
This book provides a comprehensive guide to the complexities of the 1996 Convention, including detailed coverage of the relationship with other international instruments such as the revised Brussels II Regulation. The Appendices contain all relevant source material including the full text of the Convention.
