EU signs Hauge convention on Child Tax

As predicted no where to escape to……

The European Union signed yesterday a new international convention making it harder for absentee parents to escape child support payments.

The Hague Maintenance Convention agreement sets up ‘a worldwide system for recovering child support and other family maintenance payments’, also providing for free legal aid in international child support cases, the EU said.

It extends beyond the external borders of its 27 states, home to half a billion people, the broad thrust of internal EU rules on recognising and enforcing maintenance decisions, which will apply from June 18 this year.
‘The EU’s signing of this international convention will ensure that children receive the same protection if a parent moves outside the EU,’ said justice commissioner Viviane Reding in a statement.

The decision has still to be ratified and will not acquire legal force until 2013.

The United States, Norway and Ukraine have already signed the convention. Others including Japan, China, Russia, Australia, Canada and Brazil are expected to do so, the EU said




  1. Thanks Scrap,
    All the more reason for men to push for the Male Birth Control Pill to come to market.

    The scientist behind the male pill discovery has developed a tablet that removes a vital protein in sperm that is required for a woman to conceive.

    So while sperm still get through to the uterus they are unable to fertilise an egg.

    Using this approach, researchers believe they have a pill that is 100 pc effective at stopping pregnancy.

    Not only is it long lasting but it also has other pluses. There are no side effects as suffered by women who take the contraceptive pill.

  2. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    One would have thought someone with American legal training would be aware of this. Then it’s not the American Government that they serve nor human rights.
