When a child is parentally abducted TIME IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE, and it is hard to know where to begin.  Parents dealing with the loss of a child go through a number of unexpected emotions.

-Why would my ex do this?

-Do I need an attorney?

-Should I consider a recovery?

-In international abductions, what is the Hague Convention and how can it help me?

-Where should I start?

If you need help answering any of these questions please feel free to call us for a free telephone consultation.  We are always available.
