    President Barack Obama signed an instrument to ratify a Hague convention that will allow more children to receive financial support regardless of where their parents reside, White House National Security Council spokesperson Ned Price said in a press release on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Ratification of the convention, Price continued, will let more US children receive financial support from their parents, whether their parents reside in the United States or in a foreign country that is party to the accord.

    "President [Obama] signed the instrument of ratification for the Hague Convention on International Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance," Price stated.

    The convention, Price added, also contains groundbreaking provisions to establish uniform, efficient and inexpensive procedures for processing international child support cases.
