International Children Matters
We deal with international child abduction and cases involving children with an international element to include:
- Applications under the Hague Convention;
- Wardship and inherent jurisdiction proceedings;
- Enforcement and recognition of foreign orders;
- Applications for permission to move abroad with your child.
Our team includes a Resolution accredited specialist and Child Abduction and Contact Unit panel lawyer, Philippa Morgan. Philippa was named Legal Expert of the Year 2018 at the CiLEX National Awards and was shortlisted for Legal Executive of the Year at the Family Law Awards 2019 and 2020.
We recognise that these type of cases are very distressing and our experts will guide you through this complex area and provide you with clear and comprehensive advice.
"My case handler secured the withdrawal of a ‘Contentious Probate’ claim. It took a considerable amount of time and it became increasingly difficult and extremely successful. I cannot express how much I appreciate all their help, diligence and doing a really professional job. Thank you Lyons Davidson for all your hard work, professionalism and sensible approach to ending this extremely trying time."
