Shortlands

Child Abduction Solicitors

International Child Abductions

 

We have regularly dealt with cases where one parent fears the abduction of their child by the other to another country. We are experts at taking emergency measures to prevent this in the form of applying for Prohibited Steps Orders.

 

Where a child has already been abducted to another country that is a party to the Hague Convention, then assistance can be sought from the Child Abduction Unit at minimum cost.

If abduction has occurred to another Non-Hague Convention country, then Shortlands can assist with obtaining the right Orders to secure your child’s return. You will need to act quickly.
