Today, the HCCH Convention of 23 November 2007 on the International Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance (“Child Support Convention”) enters into force for Kazakhstan, following the deposit of its instrument of accession on 6 June 2017.
The 2007 Child Support Convention currently has 41 Contracting Parties (incl. REIOs and States bound as a result of approval by an REIO). The entry into force for Kazakhstan, following those for Ukraine (2013), Turkey (2017) and Belarus (2018) marks the extension of the Convention’s reach towards Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
Kazakhstan has been a HCCH Member since 2017 and is currently party to eight other HCCH instruments.
