The issues surrounding family breakdowns are complex. Without advice in the early stages, the situation could potentially become desperate, resulting in an unlawful abduction. With expert knowledge on this issue, our solicitors have experience in dealing with these matters with urgency to ensure your child’s safe return. We can also offer advice and suggest preventative measures via the Courts to ensure abduction does not occur.

A person can only take a child out of England and Wales to live overseas with the permission of all other people with parental responsibility or by permission of the court. The unauthorised removal of a child from the country, or the retention of a child in another country, is a highly specialised area of law requiring expert child law solicitors who are well-versed in handling such cases.

Whether your child has been removed or retained or if you are concerned they may be in the future, or if you have received notice of a court action because you have taken your child to the UK from overseas, get in touch with our expert team. We can advise fully on the issue, and we can also suggest preventative measures should you be concerned about your child being removed from the country.
