Michael S. Pascazi, Attorney & Counselor-at-Law, and Managing Member of Pascazi Law Offices PLLC has joined the Attorney Network maintained by the Office of Children’s Issues at the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs. Network attorneys provide legal representation to parents involved in International Child Abduction cases.
Each year, hundreds of children are abducted by a parent or family member across international borders to and from the United States. Parental & familial child abduction not only jeopardizes the child’s well being, it has substantial long term consequences for the left behind parent, the family, and society. When a child is abducted internationally, the difficulties are compounded for everyone involved. The U.S. Department of State places the highest priority on the welfare of children, and is deeply committed to assisting children and parents involved in these cases.
As part of their efforts, the Office of Children’s Issues maintains the Attorney Network. As the U.S. Central Authority for the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Children’s Issues helps parents find legal representation to pursue remedies available under the Convention. The attorneys who join the Attorney Network, such as Attorney Pascazi, share a commitment to helping parents pursue recovery of their children, as well as a commitment to implementing the Convention.
Should you, a loved one or a friend be faced with an International Parental Child Abduction, seek competent legal advice as soon as possible. Further, do not hesitate to contact Attorney Pascazi for a Free Initial Consultation.
