What are some exceptions to the Convention on the return of the Child?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Medina v. Pallett, 2010 BCSC 259 (CanLII):

Certain exceptions to the return of the Child which is mandated in this case by Article 12 of the Convention are set out in Articles 13 and 20. There are only a few exceptions to be applied, with a narrow scope. The burden of establishing the application of one of these exceptions falls on the respondent on a balance of probabilities: Matzke v. Matzke, 2009 BCSC 1532 at para. 29 [Matzke].
