The Hague Convention of 23 November 2007 on the International Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance and the Hague Protocol of 23 November 2007 on the Law Applicable to Maintenance Obligations seek to establish a modern, efficient and accessible international system for the cross-border recovery of child support and other forms of family maintenance. This specialised section contains a range of information on the Convention and the Protocol, including their full texts, current status, explanatory documents and other materials which will assist those working with these instruments.
Please note that the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Conference has no mandate to assist in individual cases of the international recovery of child support and family maintenance cases. If you have a question relating to the international recovery of child support or other forms of family maintenance, and your country is bound by the 2007 Child Support Convention or the 2007 Protocol on the Law Applicable to Maintenance Obligations, please contact the Central Authority designated by your country.
