Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The Application Under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of 
International Child Abduction (DS-3013 and DS 3013-s) is used by 
parents or legal guardians who are requesting the State Department's 
assistance in seeking the return of, or access to, a child or children 
alleged to have been wrongfully removed from or retained outside of the 
child's habitual residence and currently located in another country 
that is also party to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of 
International Child Abduction (the Convention). The application 
requests information regarding the identities of the applicant, the 
child or children, and the person alleged to have wrongfully removed or 
retained the child or children. In addition, the application requires 
that the applicant provide the circumstances of the alleged wrongful 
removal or retention and the legal justification for the request for 
return or access. The State Department, as the U.S. Central Authority 
for the Convention, uses this information to establish, if possible, 
the applicants' claims under the Convention; to inform applicants about 
available remedies under the Convention; and to provide the information 
necessary to the foreign Central Authority in its efforts to locate the 
child or children, and to facilitate return of or access to the child 
or children pursuant to the Convention. 22 U.S.C. 9008 is the legal 
authority that permits the Department to gather this information.
