Get a Quick Resolution With Expert Child Abduction Lawyers
When a child is taken by a parent without consent it can be a traumatic experience. If you think that your child has been relocated without your permission, either in the UK or overseas, it’s important to speak with child abduction solicitors quickly. The longer you delay, the more complex the situation might become.
In relationships where significant wealth is a factor, it’s also increasingly common for one party to be unfairly accused of taking and retaining a child abroad without the consent of the other parent. If this is happening to you, the consequences can be extremely serious. Again, time is of the essence, so seeking advice from established international child abduction solicitors should be your first priority.
As a holistic law firm with a speciality in acting for high net worth families, Lowry Legal are perfectly placed to help, whatever the circumstances. Our skilled team specialises in getting results, with discretion guaranteed.
How Lowry Legal can Help
Lowry Legal’s child abduction solicitors will hold a consultation to understand the details of your case, before collecting evidence to support your position. Using international agreements such as the Hague Convention, we can look to ensure that your child is quickly returned to their country of permanent residence.
Depending on the urgency of your circumstances, we can file court applications in England and Wales to address visitation rights, or emergency orders to seize passports and prevent relocation. We can also assist if you have brought your child to the UK and the other parent is applying for their return.
Wherever realistic we will prioritise negotiation and mediation to address your case. If this is not practical, we can issue court proceedings to prevent any further developments.
Throughout the process, we will focus on the child’s best interests and work to protect their welfare. Child abduction and relocation cases can be both traumatic and legally complex, requiring experienced child abduction lawyers to navigate effectively.
