When these international family relationships work well, children in these households benefit from growing up in a bilingual and multicultural households. However, when these relationships fail, the children may become the object of international parental abduction.
This article is intended to serve as a primer on handling international parental abduction cases. Its objective is to provide an initial overview and understanding of the law in this very critical area, focusing on legal action parents can take when international child custody disputes arise and one parent removes the child or children to another country.
