Abduction


Parental child abduction has become a high profile issue in recent years. The unsanctioned removal of a child or children by a parent can happen on the breakdown of relationship, and can cause untold grief to the family left behind. A removal of this type may well be a criminal offence.

If you are concerned that your child or children are about to be removed from the UK without your consent, we can advise you on emergency measures to minimise the chances of that happening. If the worst has happened, and your child has already been removed, we can also advise you on the best course of action. Most countries are signatories to the international convention requiring the return of children to their country of original residence and we have considerable expertise in enforcing this.
