Who Is This Service For?

Useful Information

In Turkey, the process for retrieving a child who has been abducted by a non-custodial parent is primarily governed by the following laws and international agreements:

  • Turkish Civil Code (Türk Medeni Kanunu) - Articles 182-199: These sections of the Turkish Civil Code deal with family law, including custody matters. They provide the legal framework for custody decisions and disputes within Turkey.
  • Law No. 5717 on International Child Abduction: This law is the implementation of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction in Turkey. It provides the legal procedure for the return of children abducted from or to Turkey in violation of custody rights established in another country. The law aims to ensure the prompt return of the child to their habitual residence.
  • Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (1980): Turkey is a signatory to this international treaty, which seeks to protect children from international abduction by a parent or guardian. The Convention provides a procedure to bring about the quick return of abducted children to their country of habitual residence.
  • Turkish Penal Code (Türk Ceza Kanunu) - Articles 234 and 235: These articles may also be relevant as they deal with the abduction of a person and kidnapping, which can apply to cases where a non-custodial parent abducts a child. Criminal charges can be pursued alongside the civil procedures for the return of the child.
