BREXIT could cause a spike in the number of parents abducting their children, experts claim.

eu-flagThe uncertainty brought about by the referendum vote has lead to a ‘significant increase’ in the number of parents in unstable relationships seeking advice about their rights to relocate or to prevent the other parent from travelling because they are worried they may not come back with the children, said Cara Nuttall, partner at JMW Solicitors.

“We’ve also seen a rise in disputes about applications for foreign nationality and travel documents for children entitled to dual citizenship in fragile international families.”

She explained that some foreign parents want to maximise their chances of being able to return home with the children if things don’t work out, while British parents want to make it harder for them to do so.

 “The inevitable temptation is to consider taking matters into their own hands, and just go.”
