International child abduction by a parent is unfortunately a reality today. Many times, people from different countries meet, fall in love and have children in different countries. If the relationship breaks down one or the other parent may engage in international child abduction, taking the child without the other parent’s permission to live in their home country. International child abduction by a parent is very complicated and involves different countries’ laws.
