  • My ex and child(ren) have disappeared!

    You come home one day to your partner and child, but find an empty house, or the police were called and you were arrested, the police release you and you find your partner has disappeared with your child. This is the story our service users frequently tell us and they are desperate to find out what's happened to their child. What should you do? - First things first, is there a chance your partner may go abroad with your child(ren)? If so you must act quickly, contact the police, perferably go and see them. Tell them you believe your ex may abduct your child abroad and ask them to put out an "all ports call". Take photos if you have them and their passport details if you know them. Read More
