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

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
