Family abduction of a child – as a result of separation or divorce – occurs when a parent or a friend or relative of this parent removes and conceals a child without the permission of the other parent.
Abductors may illegally take a child to remove him or her to punish a divorced spouse. Whatever the manifest reason, abduction is always emotionally painful and is sometimes a form of abuse as well.
Parents can take several steps to minimize the risk of family abduction of their child.
Parents suspecting the probability of a family abduction should contact legal counsel.
