If a child is removed from your care and taken abroad without your permission this can be unlawful and requires urgent action.
Child abduction is a complex area of law and it is essential to take urgent specialist legal advice to ensure the safe and prompt return of the child to this country. If the wrong steps are taken, these can have far reaching and permanent consequences. Our child abduction team has extensive experience in acting for parents in cases where children have been removed both within the UK and abroad. We are members of the International Child Abduction and Contact Unit (ICACU) and members of the Lord Chancellor’s Child Abduction Panel. As panel members we are experienced in dealing with emergency situations including urgent applications (often out of conventional court hours) for orders to find children both within the UK and abroad.
