IOWA CODE TO INCLUDE HAGUE PROVISIONS

UCCJEA to Adopt Hague Convention on Child Protection and Jurisdiction

July 16th, 2013

Earlier this month the States voted to amend the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) to implement the Hague Convention on Jurisdiction and Protection of Children. The UCCJEA is a uniform set of laws that is codified in Iowa Code section 598B. The new amendments should provide more clarity for family law practitioners and judges who do not regularly practice in international family law. The new provisions may be found at Hague_Convention_ on_Protection_of_Children
