It's a holiday season - Christmas, Santa Claus, presents, egg nog, etc - but forgive me if I don't feel festive. It has been five (5) months since the District Appeal Court in Gdansk has issued its final ruling on my Hague Convention application to return the children to USA - and my children are still in Poland! One would think that it's impossible. How can it be?
For quite some time now I have realized that the problem of poor compliance by the Polish judicial branch is caused mainly by the fact that the Polish judges and attorneys do not understand and do not know the law of The Hague Convention Treaty. I could not figure out however, how to make a dent in fixing this problem.
