A Father's petition for the return of his children to Cyprus under the Hague Convention
Charalambous v. Charalambous, 10-2227, concerned a challenge to the district court's holding that there was not clear and convincing evidence of a grave risk of harm to the children and that the Convention required their return, in a father's petition for the return of his two children to Cyprus pursuant to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
In affirming the court held that the district court's conclusion, that the children's mother failed to meet her burden of establishing the existence of such a grave risk by clear and convincing evidence, is not in error and is strongly supported by the record. Thus, the stay of removal of the children is lifted and it is ordered that the children be placed in the custody of the father no later than December 9, 2010 at 12:00 p.m. for their return to Cyprus.
