Side Agreements In Countries With The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction

The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction allows for any two states to agree amongst themselves as to what their restrictions will be on the return of children, between themselves. What this means is that even if two countries are signatories to The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, there may be another, superseding treaty that will control how international child abduction and parental kidnapping will be handled between them.

Article 36

Nothing in this Convention shall prevent two or  more Contracting States, in order to limit the restrictions to which the return of the child may be subject, from agreeing among themselves to derogate from any provisions of this Convention which may imply such a restriction.
