Neustadt v Neustadt (Child Abduction)

Minor – Removal outside jurisdiction. The proceedings concerned the abduction of two boys, who, in 2012, were taken to Russia by their father and were only returned to the care of their mother in June 2014, after strenuous efforts by the English and Russian authorities. The father sought to resume contact with the boys and their younger brother. A fact-finding hearing was convened. The Family Division made findings as to the events between 2012 and 2014 and concluded that the father's expressions of regret were not genuine.
