Child Abduction

Many barristers in Trinity Chambers have gained considerable experience in cases involving child abduction including international child abduction.


The court expects parties to have explored the possibility of reaching a settlement by mediation in financial remededy and private law children cases before seeking the court’s assistance.  This can also take place after court proceedings have commenced and can save parties considerable expense and time given the inevitable delays encountered when taking a dispute to trial. We at Trinity Chambers have considerable experience in advising clients regarding the possibility of mediation and its consequences as well as in hosting mediations and providing the mediators.
