Service Details

Child Abduction

This service is available across Spain

Who Is This Service For?

  • This service is for individuals facing the harrowing ordeal of child abduction in Spain, where their child has been wrongfully removed by the other parent. 
  • Such situations are sufficiently fraught without having to attempt to manage it in another language, and handling the complex laws relating to international child abduction. 
  • This service can assure such parents proficient legal assistance in Spain, having appropriate regard for The 1980 Hague Convention and the Brussels IIb Regulations. 
  • Our lawyers assist clients and help them to overcome legal impediments and expedite the safe repatriation of their child.
Who Is This Service For?


The process for recovering an abducted child is unfortunately extremely complex.

  1. The first step the lawyers will take will be to examine your case within the context of the 1980 Hague Convention and Brussels IIb Regulations. The focal point is the habitual residence of the child pre-abduction. 
  2. Via the Central Authorities in EU countries, we initiate the procedure to return the child, orchestrating a compelling case in the process. 
  3. The court, within six weeks from case registration, deliberates on the rights of custody and access, while ensuring the child, if capable, is heard. 

Advantages of this Service

  • Engaging our services, clients immediately have multilingual legal support - proficient in both Spanish and English - to ensure high levels of communication at all times - something that many English-speakers in Spain unfortunately do not have access to.
  • The lawyers' experience allows them to keep clients well-informed on progress and to explain procedural complexities - again, something often difficult to achieve in Spain.
  • The distinctive advantage is the personalised service, underpinned by a thorough understanding of international child abduction laws, helping your case towards a successful resolution.
