Norway's ratification of the 1996 Hague Convention will strengthen co-operation with other states in cross-border parental disputes and child welfare cases. The Convention will enter into force 1 July 2016.
The circular will provide information about how the child welfare service can handle these type of cases, including examinations, measures and the possibility of alternative follow-up of the child abroad.
In order to gain more knowledge of how child welfare cases are handled, the Norwegian Board of Health Supervision has now been given the task of reviewing a large number of urgent child welfare cases and cases involving children being taken into care.
