Child abduction is a serious offence under international law.
When a parent acts unilaterally without a court order and removes a child or children from the jurisdiction where the custody arrangements were set it invokes the Haig Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
That convention holds that the right and lawful place to deal with issues arising from custody and access is in the original jurisdiction. If a child is abducted and taken to another jurisdiction the authorities are required to apprehend the parent and return the child to the original country.
If you believe your child has been abducted please call the police immediately then call us.
