These are matters involving children who have been abducted, usually by the other parent, to another country where it now becomes difficult for the other parent to see the children and have the children returned to them. You need to first investigate which country the child has been abducted to and whether such country is a signatory to the Hague Convention. There are currently 93 countries which have signed the convention. The Hague Convention provides for a speedy return of an abducted child to their place of habitual residence.
