Upcoming CJR Events
Friday NOVEMBER 27:
“Japan’s Ratification of the Hague Convention on Child Abduction and Its Implications”
UBC Robson Square, Room C100
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 pm
When one parent returns back to Japan with his/her child after divorce without consent of the other parent, this conduct could be viewed as child abduction. Until recently, however, there was no way to force the child to return back to his/her original place of residence once the child entered Japan. Now with the ratification of the Hague Convention on Child Abduction, Japan will be required to return the child back to his/her original place of residence. What is the background for this ratification? What has changed? We hope to explore the significance of this recent development and provide essential information to the Japanese community here in Vancouver. We welcome anyone who is interested in child custody.
