International

The “international family” is now more common in our global economy.  When such relationships break down, separation can be over much larger distances, exacerbating the legal problems that will anyway arise: decisions as to with whom the children will live might no longer involve moving to the next neighbourhood or town, but to a different country, and with our history of empire that country could be on the other side of the world.

Where does that leave the other parent? What arrangements should be made and what are the financial implications? It is fundamental that a child can only be taken out of the jurisdiction with the agreement of the other parent, or an order of the court, and that is where a court process, often difficult and agonising, can arise. We have experience of such matters.

Taking a child out of the country without agreement or court order is an abduction. Urgent action may be needed and requires immediate steps by experienced lawyers. We can help with this.
