Can anyone shed some details of an appeal to this level? Has anyone had their case go there before?
Let me know
Look at the Kelvin Birotte and Francois Larivee cases and you will see how the STJ usually handles these Hague abduction cases. Unfortunately they sit on these appeals for years. STJ is also the home of Judge Nancy Andrighi, who unfortunately has a history of ignoring the Hague Convention and pressuring the left-behind parent into mediation/arbitration to resolve the case, rather than follow the law and uphold the return order from the lower courts.
