International Parental Child Abduction

Montenegro and the United States have been treaty partners under the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (Hague Abduction Convention) since December 1, 1991, when it was part of Yugoslavia.  Following establishment of independence in 2006, Montenegro declared itself bound by this Convention on March 1, 2007.
