Parental Child Abduction: Europe's Answer

40 views

More and more often, we hear about the difficulties which arise when a mixed couple – i.e. of different nationalities – divorce after having children. The temptation is strong for one of the two parents to leave the country and take the children with him or her. The slowness and complexity of legal procedures often work in favour of the parent who does the kidnapping. The 'Brussels II' European directive will do away with this. What is the 'Brussels II' directive? How can it be dissuasive? How does it work and what is its use? These three reports answer these questions by presenting actual cases which illustrate the suffering of parents and children. "Parental Abduction" has the following reports: 1st report: A case between Belgium and Sweden 2nd report: A case between the Czech Republic and France 3rd report: The first stages of a European legal network in Slovenia, a new member state
