International Child Abduction

Members of our team our specialist in dealing with cases where a child has been wrongfully retained in another country by one parent and may have been abducted from the care of the parent they normally live with. We have dealt with many cases where there is significant dispute about which country has jurisdiction to deal with the case and factual disputes about which parent is the primary carer and how much time the child has spent in each jurisdiction, such that a determination can be properly made about where the child’s interests will best be met going forwards. In such cases expert advice on the presentation of relevant evidence in support of applications to the court is essential at the earliest opportunity. Our team members have a thorough understanding of this complex area of law and the international treaties that may apply in such cases and provide pragmatic and realistic advice to protect children until the court resolves matters.
