Service Details

Child Abduction

This service is available across Spain

Who Is This Service For?

This service is for individuals facing the harrowing ordeal of parental child abduction, where their child has been wrongfully removed from Spain by the other parent. 

Such situations are sufficiently fraught without having to attempt to manage it in another language, and navigating the complex legal terrain of international child abduction laws. 

 This service can assure such parents proficient legal assistance in Spain, having appropriate regard for the nuances of the 1980 Hague Convention and the Brussels IIb Regulation. 

Our lawyers assist clients and help them to surmount legal hurdles and hasten the safe repatriation of their child.

Requirements

The essence of the service is rooted in the universal plight of parents, transcending national and linguistic barriers. Age of the client or other personal attributes do not impede the accessibility of this service. The cornerstone is the wrongful removal or retention of the child, which propels the legal machinery into action.

Procedure

The process for recovering an abducted child is unfortunately extremely complex.

The first step the lawyers will take will be to examine your case against the backdrop of the 1980 Hague Convention and Brussels IIb Regulation. The focal point is the habitual residence of the child pre-abduction. 

Leveraging the Central Authorities in EU countries, we initiate the procedure to return the child, orchestrating a compelling case in the process. 

The court, within six weeks from case registration, deliberates on the rights of custody and access, while ensuring the child, if capable, is heard. 

Our navigation through these procedural steps seeks to accelerate the resolution, reuniting you with your child expeditiously.

Benefits

Engaging our services, clients immediately have a multilingual legal ally, adept in both Spanish and English, bridging the communication chasm that many English-speakers in Spain unfortunately have to endure.

The lawyers' experience allows them to keep clients well-informed on progress and to explain procedural complexities - often difficult to achieve in Spain.

The distinctive advantage is the personalized service, underlined with a deep understanding of international child abduction laws, helping your case towards a successful resolution.
