Matters of Procedure

An applicant under the Convention is given the option of three methods of mobilising its provisions. He may apply either to the Central Authority of the child's habitual residence or to the Central Authority of any other Contracting State (presumably the State where the child is thought or known to be) (Article 8). However, this facility is without prejudice to the right of the applicant, if he so wishes, to bypass the Central Authorities and make a direct application to the courts of a Contracting State (Article 29).
