Filler Rodriguez, LLP Successfully Defends Hague Convention Return Case

On June 13, 2024, Catherine Rodriguez, a Board-Certified Specialist in Marital and Family Law, along with the dedicated legal team at Filler Rodriguez, LLP achieved a significant legal victory by successfully defending a Petition for Return under the Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.

Successful Defense in Hague Convention Return Case

The case was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Hague Convention cases are particularly challenging to defend because the Convention’s primary goal is to facilitate the prompt return of abducted children to their country of habitual residence, often notwithstanding the presence of valid defenses.

The legal team at Filler Rodriguez, LLP undertook a meticulous and strategic approach to this complex case. Their successful defense was predicated on demonstrating that the petitioner did not meet the necessary burden of proof to establish a prima facie case for the child’s return. This involved a thorough examination of the facts, gathering of compelling evidence, and presenting a well-constructed argument that effectively challenged the petitioner’s claims.

Catherine Rodriguez’s expertise in marital and family law, combined with the comprehensive support of her team, was instrumental in navigating the intricate legal landscape of the Hague Convention. Their combined efforts ensured that every aspect of the case was meticulously addressed, ultimately leading to the court’s decision in favor of the respondent.

This victory not only underscores the exceptional legal acumen and dedication of Filler Rodriguez, LLP but also highlights the importance of having a skilled and experienced legal team when facing complex international child abduction cases. The defeat of the Petition for Return is a testament to the firm’s ability to handle high-stakes cases and deliver favorable outcomes for their clients.
