It provides a summary of the 2007 Hague Convention on the International Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance (the Convention), which was adopted by the United States in 2017. It also provides a description of the provisions included in P.L. 113-183 that pertain to enforcement of child support in international cases.
