If your child has been abducted by your ex-partner, the first priority is to assess the safety of your children, and calling the police and/or CAS as soon as needed.
Next priority is to involve a family lawyer, who can assist with returning your child and reinstating your parenting time.
If your child has been abducted, waiting to take action can hurt your case. This is because the likelihood of the family courthouse in your ex-partner’s location exercising jurisdiction over parenting and other legal issues related to your divorce or separation increases with the time your child/ children spend in the new location.
It’s therefore important to consult with a family lawyer immediately.
