Attorney Michael S. Pascazi thanked by the U.S. State Department for Participating in the Hague Convention Attorney Network
Attorney Michael S. Pascazi is a member of the U.S. State Department Bureau of Consular Affairs’ attorney network, concerning the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
Attorney Pascazi has participated in this network for a number of years. Attorneys in the network assist parents of children who have been abducted from their home countries and brought to the United States of America, usually by the other parent. The Hague Convention is a multilateral treaty (codified in U.S. Federal law), that sets forth the mechanism by which a parent whose child custody rights have been violated in his/her home country can sue in U.S. Federal District Court to have his/her child returned to his/her home country. As of 2016, there were 94 countries who were party to the treaty.
