This article gives an exploratory picture of the landscape on international parental child abduction cases in a non-Hague Convention country, Singapore. It presents data and analyses on unpublished cases and materials in the past five years from the Singapore Family Court Registry (SFCR) and discusses the ways in which the disputes are resolved (or unresolved) without the machinery of the Hague Convention. It also examines the welfare principle in the context of cross-border child abduction as well as how a non-Convention country can cooperate in the elimination of child abduction while applying the welfare principle.
