Not in the strict sense, but children can be removed to other parts of the jurisdiction of England and Wales which is contrary to the rights of a parent with parental responsibility. If you believe there is a real and imminent risk of this happening then we can help you with specialist advice. Where appropriate you can seek an injunction known as a ‘prohibited steps order’. Scotland and Northern Ireland have different legal systems. If the child is removed to either of them, the proceedings are often raised in the jurisdiction where the child usually lives. Orders for return can then be registered and enforced in the other legal jurisdiction.
