Abstract:     
Children in transnational families face the same kinds of crises that other children experience, compounded by issues of language, culture, nationality, and immigration status. Although the global dimension of these families introduces additional concerns, courts and child welfare authorities have the same fundamental obligation to extend their protection to all children present in the United States. This paper reviews a series of problems posed by child welfare cases with international dimensions, and considers how the Hague Child Protection Convention may be useful in these cases, arguing that implementation of the Convention should include significant attention to its cooperation provisions.
