My ex-wife left Israel suddenly for Latvia with our child , over whom the court awarded her custody. She has written saying she has no intention of returning our son to Israel . I knew nothing about her departure beforehand and would not have agreed to my son leaving Israel. How can I get my son back ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 02 June, 2022
The father can take Hague Convention proceedings to secure the minor’s return via the Central Authority in Israel because on that date the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of Child Abduction became effective regarding abductions between Israel and Latvia.
