The news that Pakistan has joined the Hague Convention 1980 will be welcomed by parents and legal practitioners. As from 1 February 2017, Pakistan will be a contracting state to the 1980 Hague Convention. This international treaty sets out legal procedures for the prompt return of children who are wrongfully removed or retained away from their country of habitual residence. The 1980 Hague Convention aims to protect children from the harmful effects of child abduction.
