The Family Law Company has expertise in the specialist field of child abduction, reuniting worried parents with their precious children.

The number of child abduction cases is rising as relationships between partners of different nationalities become more common.

Child abduction is an extremely complex area of child law and you will need an experienced hand to guide you through the many UK and international legal processes.

Our specialist Child Abduction team is on the Government’s International Child Abduction and Contact Unit referral list that requires solicitors to demonstrate they have the resources and competencies required for this demanding work.

If your child has been abducted already or you are worried that they may be abducted ‒ either internationally or in the UK ‒ we will be able to give you practical advice immediately.

Alternatively, if you seek to permanently remove your children from the UK, we will help you to prepare an application. It is important that you have a realistic and well-researched plan that is in the best interest of the child, including employment, family abroad, accommodation and schooling. You should also ensure that you make provision, when this is the case, for the child to maintain a relationship with the other parent.

I can’t quite believe it has all come to an end. I will be forever grateful for all you have done. Not just professionally but your reassurance and constantly being there on the end of a phone to ‘pick me back up’. You have been a big part of my life for two years and I will never forget the compassion you showed during one of the most difficult times. Thank you.
