Case Alert: Colchester v. Lazaro (2021)

Case Summary
November 18, 2021

In an international custody case under the Hague Convention, courts must give parents an opportunity to gather evidence about how the child would be affected by returning to the foreign country. The court must balance the importance of a quick decision with ensuring parents have enough time to obtain evidence of the child's condition, such as expert psychological examinations.
