24 Novembro 2010

On 29 September 2010, the United States Senate approved the Hague Convention on the International Recovery of Child Support and other Forms of Family Maintenance. This treaty will make it easier for Americans to recover child support payments from a non-custodial parent living abroad and promotes the establishment, recognition, and enforcement of child support obligations in cases where the custodial parent and child are in one country and the non-custodial parent is in another.
The Convention, adopted on 23 November 2007, was signed by the United States on the same date.
