US Family Law refugee in Netherlands (2008)
This case has just been pointed out to me. It is quite a complex case including allegations of MSbP. It does demonstrate, however, that there are quite a few family law refugee cases over time.
The challenge in private law cases (which is what this essentially was) is to find a way forward that does not have this dreadfully adversarial approach where the state acts as a steamroller.
One concern I have about this case is that it should have been possible to avoid the children losing contact with one of their parents without using the state hammer.
