The International Child Abduction Center (Center IKO) is the legal expertise center in the field of (the prevention of) international child abduction. We provide free advice, guidance and information to parents and professionals.
The legal advisors of the Center IKO specialize in the legal aspects of international child abductions. They provide advice and information about the legal possibilities a client has and help to find solutions for a client’s situation. They also offer guidance to parents.
Our legal advisors give advice by phone and e-mail. The legal advisor gives advice based on the information shared by the client. In order to give the most complete advice possible, it is our preference to discuss the situation over the phone. This way, the legal advisor can gather all the necessary information that is needed for an accurate advice.
We do not act as a legal representative or a lawyer. We can, however, assist you and, if necessary, refer you to a lawyer or mediator.
