With so many international families in the UK and many people having links with foreign jurisdictions, from time to time, children can be taken abroad or not returned, usually by a close family member; this is known as child abduction.

A parent who is away from their child unexpectedly will feel vulnerable, frightened and worried. We know that because our team deal with the international aspects of child law, both planned relocations and abductions.

Dealing with Child Abduction is a specialist area and Major Family Law has a number of solicitors whose specialism in children cases includes assisting with the recovery of children from abroad.

In those frightening situations, we know you need a specialist who can use experience to get your child or children back to where they should be.

We know abduction needs urgent attention and we have a team of lawyers who can work on that urgently when you need it.
