About this Program

Then one morning, you receive an email from a mother in the Republic of Yemen. She tells you her former husband has abducted their daughter from her home in Yemen land and is now living with her in your city here in the United States. She wants to know if you can help her. You are conversant with the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, having handled several cases over the years, so you agree to represent this mother. Then you learn that Yemen is not a party to the Hague Convention. What do you do?
