Families are increasingly living mobile lifestyles in a variety of jurisdictions around the globe. It is important to know whether children are being moved from one country to another with a parent legitimately or whether they are being abducted or unlawfully retained.
It is very important that urgent specialist advice is taken by anyone:
- contemplating moving children to another country;
- seeking the return of children from another country; or
- defending an application for a child to be returned to another country.
We are specialists in this fast-developing area of law and have been involved in many reported cases where children have either been removed or retained in another country.
