Relocation & Abduction of Children Disputes
Taking a child abroad to another country outwith the UK must be agreed by both parents where they both hold full parental responsibilities & rights or it can be classed as child abduction. This is a very serious and complex legal issue that requires the expertise of a family lawyer to help resolve these types of issues.
Child abduction applies when one parent takes a child out of the country without the other parent’s expressed agreement – even if only for a holiday.
When families are made up of parents from different countries, a separation presents a child abduction risk where one parent may wish to return to their home country, taking the children with them.
Whether you are the parent wishing to return to your home country with your children, or you are the parent who is fearful of losing their child, we can help ensure the child’s best interests are always at the heart of our advice.
If there’s an ongoing dispute around child relocation or child abduction it is vital to have a family lawyer on your side to protect you and your children’s best interests.
