Child Abduction

Child abduction involves the wrongful and illegal removal of a child either from or to the United Kingdom.

 

Orders for Protection by way of Interdict can be sought.  Reunite is the leading UK Charity specialising in the movement of children across international borders.

 

Many countries are signatories to the Hague Convention which can assist in the return of children.  The Scottish Government acts as the Central Authority when children are removed to other countries.

 

We can assist if your child has been brought to the United Kingdom by the other parent in the absence of your consent, or you have brought the child to the United Kingdom without the other parent’s consent.
