Child Abduction: Prevention of & Response to National and International Cases (Recording) 

Oct. 8, 2014

Presented by CBA's Children's Law Committee

Images of strangers in cars come to mind when talking about child abduction. But more and more often, the perpetrator is a lot closer to home: children being abducted by their own parent.  What unfolds is terrifying for the family, and tough for you as the lawyer.

This webinar will shed some light on the following challenging issues:

  • identification of cases where there appears to be a significant risk of abduction (“red flags”);
  • measures that counsel can take through the courts and involvement of police, criminal prosecutors, search agencies, consular staff and border agencies to prevent or deter abduction;
  • immediate responses in cases of ongoing abduction;
  • responses after abduction has occurred, including consideration of responses within Canada, in countries that are signatories of the Hague Convention, and in non-Hague countries.  

Join us to hear from experienced speakers, who will discuss both legal responses, and less formal voluntary and non-judicial responses. You will also take away practical advice on how to deal with governments, police and non-governmental agencies, as well counsel in other jurisdictions.

For family lawyers, judges and criminal prosecutors, this webinar is one not to be missed!
