How will children be protected from international abduction post Brexit?
Monday December 14, 2020 | 3 min read
Parental abduction is when one parent removes or keeps a child from the country they normally live in, without the agreement of the other parent. A parent can only travel abroad with their child if everyone with parental responsibility agrees. Without this, a child cannot be removed from the UK, as this would be abduction - a criminal offence in the UK.
