There are 3 main Categories of Child Abduction:

•    Abduction – This is where the child is removed out of jurisdiction without the Left Behind Parents consent. This could be a criminal offence, but not every case of abduction.

•    Wrongful Retention – This is where a child is retained in another country after an overseas visit or vacation.

•    Threat of Abduction – This is where there is an  threat or great risk that a child or children  will be taken out of country.
