With foreword by The Rt. Hon. Sir Mathew Thorpe: "this handbook ... rightly focuses on what the generalist family lawyer should do when confronted with a Convention case. I do not doubt that it has a useful place on many a lawyer's bookshelf."
A Practical Guide to International Parental Child Abduction Law (England and Wales) provides a grounding on the law and practice in return proceedings, encompassing interactions between Hague Contracting States (including member States of the European Union) and non-Convention jurisdictions.
The book seeks to guide readers through key topics such as jurisdiction, procedure, applicable law, and enforcement, looking at these through the distinguishing lens of Convention versus non-Convention cases.
The book also explores salient issues around the voice of the child, objections to return, protective measures, other remedies available under the 1980 Hague convention, and mediation.
