Publication of the Spanish version of the Guide to Good Practice under the Child Abduction Convention: Part IV - Enforcement

22 Februar 2011

It is with great pleasure that the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Conference on Private International Law announces the publication of the Spanish version of Part IV of the Guide to Good Practice under the Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction - Enforcement. 

This Guide is based upon the principles of good practice presented to, and supported by, the Fifth Meeting of the Special Commission to review the operation of the Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and the Hague Convention of 19 October 1996 on Jurisdiction, Applicable Law, Recognition, Enforcement and Co-operation in Respect of Parental Responsibility and Measures for the Protection of Children (30 October - 9 November 2006).  The Guide has been prepared according to the Conclusions and Recommendations of the Special Commission meeting.

The Permanent Bureau hopes that this Guide will assist all States, i.e., States Parties and those States considering becoming Party to the Convention, to implement an efficient system to enforce Hague return orders in the best interests of the children concerned.

An English or French version of this Guide was sent to National and Contact Organs of Members, Central Authorities under the 1980 Hague Child Abduction Convention and International Hague Network Judges in Autumn 2010.  A copy of this Spanish version of the Guide will be sent to Spanish speaking National and Contact Organs, Spanish speaking Central Authorities under the 1980 Hague Child Abduction Convention and Spanish speaking International Hague Network Judges forthwith.

The Guide is also available to the public to download on this website through the hyperlinks in the previous paragraph.
