Child Abduction - Abduction To Israel

This section deals with the issue of child abduction to Israel – from a country which is also bound by the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of Child Abduction. It refers to judgments from Israeli courts in Hague Convention child abduction cases,pointing out what a parent whose child/ren has/have been abducted to Israel must prove to win the case for a return order,including particular reference to the term 'country of habitual residence'. The section also refers to defences that the alleged "abducting parent" can raise,e.g. consent, acquiescence and 'grave risk', including Israel's security situation,and to claims that the abducted minor has "settled in" to the Israeli environment ,or refuses to return,and how the Israeli courts deal with these.
