BARBADOS AND CHILD ABDUCTION
Barbados is not a party to the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction.
Barbados will not automatically recognize a foreign court’s custody orders, except in the case of the orders from the United Kingdom and certain Canadian provinces.
Barbados will review allegations of international child abduction into Barbados based on its courts’ determination of what is in the best interests of the child.
We work with lawyers in Barbados to provide advice as to international family law matters that concern Barbados. We are not Barbadian lawyers.
