My Former Spouse Wants Visitation with the Kids in a Foreign Country!
In Matura v. Griffin, the Florida Fifth District Court of Appeal recently reversed the trial court when it allowed the parties two sons to visit their father, a deportee to Jamaica, despite the requirement that the father post a substantial bond.
The appellate court reversed because Jamaica is not a signatory to the Hague Convention of the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (“Hague Convention”). The Hague Convention has proven useful in the return of children but useless when the foreign country is not a signatory.
