What else you might like to know about Child Abduction

Child abduction cases can leave a parent or guardian feeling helpless and in need of legal support from a trusted professional at short notice. Here is some basic advice and guidance to help inform your choice of legal service provider.

What are the different types of child abduction?

There are generally two forms of child abduction. The first is a parental child abduction where a parent or connected person takes a child from the other parent. The second is where a child is taken by a stranger or third party.

How does legal help differ according to these categories?

A third party abduction is a criminal offence which will be investigated by the police. A parental abduction is more likely to be viewed as a non-criminal matter unless the child is taken outside of England and Wales. A legal service provider can play a role in finding a resolution between the parties.

How can a legal service provider help?

A legal service provider can advise on the process of mediation in the event of a parental abduction and work towards an agreement between both parties. If this is not successful, it is likely that court action will be necessary and your legal services provider will help to you build the strongest case possible at court.

How should I choose the best legal expert?

Child abduction cases can be complex and it is important to choose a legal service provider with the necessary experience. In choosing your legal expert, you may wish to consider factors such as location, cost and size of a firm, as well as reviews and ratings left by existing clients before making your decision.

  • A very good site. It brought up several different quotes for my service which I was able to compare and I'm very satisfied with the provider I've chosen.

  • The site was well laid out and everything was easy to understand. Through The Law Superstore I found a great solicitor who has expert knowledge about the field I needed. I did look at other sites in my search for a solicitor, but The Law Superstore was the only site that didn't want payment upfront.
