Search & Find and Disclosure Orders - to find and return a child

You can apply for a "Search and Find Order" to bring the children home. The court can order a police officer or court official to enter and search premises where a child might be found and use such force as is necessary to get them back.

If you think that someone else knows where your child is you can apply for an order that they give the information to the court.

The court can enlist the help of the police to try and trace the children. This could involve a search of airports and seaports to ensure the children are not taken out of the country.
