Children Returned to Poland Under Hague Convention Following Alleged Kidnapping by Mother

An Illinois court ordered that two children born in the US be returned to their father in Poland, where the girls had reportedly been living before their mother allegedly abducted them to the US, after filing for divorce in Poland.

The mother reportedly absconded with the children to the US because “[i]n Poland there is no future for the kids.”

It was not reported whether the mother will pursue custody of the girls in the Polish courts, which have been held to have child custody jurisdiction over the children.
