International Child Abduction Lawyer-Hague Convention (NY, NJ, VT, Nationally)

Gourvitz & Gourvitz, LLC, has vast experience in obtaining the return of wrongfully abducted children and  preventing the abduction of children in the United States and Internationally. Because of the firm’s experience,  legal and professional relationships internationally and domestically with other attorneys and Courts, as well as the firm’s knowledge of self-help techniques, they are able to successfully have your child returned to and from both signatories to the Hague Convention and other Countries which are not signatories.

Our firm represents parents whose children have been unlawfully removed to the United States, foreign nations and to Hague Convention nations. We represent parents with lawful custody rights who wish to prevent the return of a child to another Hague Convention or non-signatory country.

The Hague Convention is a treaty designed to expedite the return of abducted children to their home countries. Once a child is returned, an appropriate court in that country will issue or affirm a child custody order according to the laws of that nation. The firm is skilled to handle your case and any media attention, having handled many publicized cases. We have professional relationships with various media outlets that could foster public attention to aid in the discovery of the whereabouts of your child and aid in his or her return.

If your child has been lawfully removed to the United States or another Country, we can help prevent the return of the child to that Country and defend against any Hague Application made in the United States which seeks the return of the child.

Gourvitz & Gourvitz, LLC, also handles many cases pursuant to the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (“UCCJEA”).  Thus, if your child has been taken unlawfully to this Country from a State that is not a member of the Hague Convention, or to another State within the United States, we can represent you with the goal of returning your child to his or her home.

We have been admitted to United States District Court, District of New Jersey, Southern District of New York, Eastern District of Wisconsin, and District of Vermont.  We are also admitted to the following Federal Appeals Courts that cover the following states: Virgin Islands, District of Guam, New Jersey, New York, District of Colombia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Connecticut, Vermont, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah, Wyoming, and the United States Supreme Court.

With advanced understanding and familiarity as a child abduction attorney, Gourvitz & Gourvitz, LLC can offer nearly a century of combined experience in the area of child abduction law.  The firm possesses extensive knowledge representing individuals involved in Hague Convention cases on a national and international basis. Designed to allow for a swift return of a child to his or her home country (place of habitual residence) when that child has been the victim of parental kidnapping, The Hague Convention provides for the international protection of children with the expectation that a child shall be returned forthwith if the Hague Convention Petition is filed within one year of the wrongful removal or retention.  A best interest analysis has no place in a Hague Convention case, and only a Court in the child’s habitual residence can decide the issue(s) of custody. When a child is returned to his home country, or place of habitual residence, that nation’s Courts will assist in deciding the custody rights as required by the law of that Country or State.  Gourvitz & Gourvitz, LLC can act your international child abduction attorney. In addition to acting as child abduction lawyers nationally and internationally, Gourvitz & Gourvitz, LLC has cultivated relationships with law firms in several non-US countries.  These associations are a help in bringing to a close issues of international parental abduction.  The firm also serves as consultants for other Attorneys nationally and internationally that are not well versed in Hague Convention cases.  Challenges for custody, parental access, and/or visitation are more easily approached by a child abduction lawyer who has formed and maintained connections with foreign legal entities.
