If a parent or guardian takes or sends a child outside of the United Kingdom without the consent of the other parent who has parental responsibility (or other appropriate consent) it is a criminal offence of Child Abduction under Section 1 of the Child Abduction Act 1984, unless:
If your child has been abducted, or you are concerned that your child will be abducted it is essential that immediate steps are taken to prevent the abduction, or alternatively to return the child to the jurisdiction. Any delay may prevent or significantly delay the return of the child. As this is a complex area of law, specialist advice should be sought from a solicitor immediately.
