Abduction of children/retention of children

Situations may arise in which one of the parents abducts a joint child either from Sweden to another country or from another country to Sweden. In other cases, a child may be retained in Sweden after the end of a contact meeting or retained in another country after the end of a contact meeting abroad. In the case of these matters, there is a possibility for a parent to request that the child be returned to the child’s home country, among other things pursuant to the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. Even if the child is abducted or retained in a country that has not acceded to the Convention, there are possibilities in other ways to conduct proceedings to have the child returned to Sweden. 

Attorney Ilhan Aydin has many years’ experience of matters involving abduction or retention of children. He is regularly retained in these often complex matters and, over the years, has successfully assisted many parents in getting back on their abducted or retained children.

The Swedish Bar Association's consumer dispute board

Disputes relating to services provided by the law firm to consumers can be tried in the Bar Association's Consumer Disputes Board. In this context, consumer refers to a natural person who acts for purposes that fall outside business or professional activities.

If a client who is a consumer is dissatisfied with the service provided by the lawyer, the client should contact the lawyer to discuss the matter and to try to reach an amicable solution. If the client has not contacted the lawyer to discuss the complaint and try to reach an amicable solution, but directly turns to the Consumer Disputes Board to have the dispute heard, the board can reject it. A prerequisite for the dispute to be heard by the Consumer Disputes Board is that it is not already being processed or has already been decided by a court.

If a case has been initiated with the lawyer's insurer, the issue must be resolved within the framework of the insurance agreement before the consumer can turn to the Consumer Disputes Board. An insurance case will thus be considered part of the consensual solution that must be concluded, before a case can be initiated at the Consumer Disputes Board. If, despite this, a case is received by the Consumer Disputes Board, the board will declare this suspended until the insurance issue is resolved.

If it is not possible to reach a solution by consensus, it is the lawyer's responsibility to inform the client of the possibility of having the matter tried within the framework of the Bar Association's Consumer Disputes Board. Added to this is the fact that a lawyer is obliged to participate in the Consumer Disputes Board's examination, if a solution by consensus has not been achieved.

The Consumer Disputes Board has the following contact details:
