How to prevent cross-border parental child abduction

International Child Abduction

The removal of children from their home by an acquaintance or family member to a foreign country is becoming more common. We understand the extreme anxiety that any parent has in these cases as well as the urgency that these cases often require and the need to be strategic in handling these matters. The best way to work towards ensuring your child's safety and protecting your parental rights with international cases is quick legal action from an experienced team. Our team has the experience to plan decisively and effectively to help you restore order to your family.

We assist parents who are involved in cross-border child abduction matters in Cyprus. This may involve a child which has been retained in Cyprus although habitually resident abroad or a child which has left Cyprus but was habitually resident in Cyprus. We provide comprehensive and sound advice on preventative measures, the filing and pursuing a complaint in Cyprus or abroad and the defense of return processes.  We have accumulated extensive experience with litigation of child abduction cases in Cyprus under the Hague Convention and the European Regulation, representing clients before the Family Court and the Supreme Court in a number of occasions, perhaps more than any other legal team in Cyprus. 

We are also a proud member of the Reunite International Child Abduction Centre, a specialised family lawyers network, specialising in the movement of children across international borders.
