We can provide advice and representation in situations where parents believe there is an imminent risk of a child being abducted or taken out of the country of habitual residence without their consent by the other parent.
Emergency steps can be taken to prevent the removal of the child from this jurisdiction. Alternatively, legal action can be taken to seek a Court Order for the return of the child.
We can also advise on the defences which may be available to a parent who has removed a child from their habitual residence. It is important that expert legal advice is given as quickly as possible.
