Some personal questions

When did you first handle a child abduction case?

In 2007, a case between Sweden and Chile.

Because this is one of my main fields of expertise and I enjoy working with colleagues from different countries and learning about family law all around the world.

What makes a child abduction case different from other cases?

In this kind of cases the time runs against getting a favorable outcome, so they must be dealt with urgency.

What do you think is important to do or not do as an attorney in child abduction cases?

It is important to verify all the information from the requesting parents related with custody rights, habitual residence country of the child, subsequently acquiesced in the retention, etc.
