Relationship breakdown of any kind is profoundly upsetting and stressful for all concerned. Where there is an international element to family relationships, resolving living arrangements for children can be particularly challenging. Added to this is the complexity of the Law concerning the movement of children across International borders.

We understand that this is a particularly difficult time for families and our approach is sensitive and skilled. Our specialist team, at our Whickham and Cramlington offices, are able to give you clear advice and guidance that you need. We have the expertise to take steps on an urgent basis, both to prevent child abduction and to recover a child if the abduction has already happened.

We also advise in cases where there are concerns about relocating a family permanently abroad or taking a child abroad on holiday.
