INCADAT legal file Hague parental abduction

Share THIS:



The mother had been ordered, by means of an order issued by Karlsruhe Local Court dated 14 November 2019 (File No: 2 F 1701/19, INCADAT Case No: 1468) to return the children, one born in December 2015, the other born in August 2017, to the U.S.A. Her complaint (Beschwerde) appeal against this was rejected by way of a decision issued by Karlsruhe Higher Regional Court dated 3 February 2020 (File No: 2 UF 200 9, INCADAT Case No: 1469).
The mother did not comply voluntarily with the obligation to return the children contained in the enforcement order. In June, an attempt was made at enforcement; this, however, was unsuccessful. The mother and children were not at home. The mother’s whereabouts, and those of the children, are unknown. Police investigations into their whereabouts have thus far been without success. An attempt to reach an agreement between the parents for the return of the children failed.
