Defenses to International Child Abduction
There are defenses available to an international child abduction case. For example, if return presents a grave risk of physical or psychological harm, or it has been over a year since the child has been in South Florida or the other parent consented and has now changed their mind-these are defenses to a return of the child which Filler Rodriguez can assert on a client’s behalf defending return. However, assertion of these defenses involves the preparation of evidence and analysis of complex case law in order to overcome an order of return in an international child abduction case.
