International Child Abduction & Relocation

Home / I immigrated to Israel after divorcing my husband in Uzbekistan. I was awarded custody of our child. I am in contact with my ex-husband in Uzbekistan for the child’s sake. He asked me if our son could visit his elderly parents as they are sick and would love to see him before they die. I agreed but my son has not come back. What legal action can I take ?

The accession of Uzbekistan to the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of Child Abduction was accepted by Israel in July 1999 and it came into force between the two countries on 1.10.99. Accordingly,where a mother claims that a child under 16 has been abducted from Israel to Uzbekistan she can make an application to the central authority in Israel, the Ministry of Justice, which will then process it and forward it to the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Uzbekistan in Tashkent so that the appropriate court will hear the case.
