Child Abduction is a complex area of law that requires knowledge and experience.  Having your child taken abroad by a family member without your agreement is a very frightening and distressing experience and you need to be sure that your child abduction lawyer really is a specialist.

Relationship breakdown of any kind is a profoundly upsetting and stressful for all concerned. Where there is an international element to family relationships, resolving living arrangements for children can be particularly challenging. Added to this is the complexity of the law concerning the movement of children across international borders.

We understand that this is a particularly difficult time for families and our approach is sensitive and skilled. Our specialist team, at our Newcastle and South Shields offices, is able to give you the clear advice and guidance that you need. We have the expertise to take steps on an urgent basis, both to prevent child abduction and to recover a child if the abduction has already happened.

We also advise in cases where there are concerns about relocating a family permanently abroad or taking a child abroad on holiday.

For advice about child abduction contact us by phone, email or complete the contact form on our website.
