Parental and international child abduction advice
If your child has been removed from its country of habitual residence, or you are considering relocating your child to another country, it is crucial to obtain legal advice from specialist child abduction solicitors.
Instances of child abduction can include:
- You seeking to lawfully remove a child as you are relocating to another country;
- Opposing the relocation of a child; or
- Have abducted a child or your child has been abducted.
Our team of child abduction solicitors are here to help you
If you need help with any of these issues, it is vital to seek advice from a specialist rather than a general family law solicitor. The reason for this is that they may not be familiar with the international movement of children law, which can have far reaching consequences.
At Nelsons, our team of child abduction solicitors can assist whether the country in question is in Europe or the rest of the world. In certain circumstances we can apply for legal aid for your case.
The team can also assist with international contact disputes. If you are relocating and one parent does not consent to the relocation, we can assist with the application before the Court with our extensive knowledge of applications to remove your child from the jurisdiction.
Our team includes:
- Resolution Accredited Specialists
- Law Society Family Panel & Advanced Family Panel members
- Law Society Children Panel Members
