An order prohibiting the removal of a child from a country

Posted by jnotoesq on May 22, 2010

In a dispute between the American mother and British father of a 15-year-old boy that has been closely watched by family and international law practitioners, the Supremes resolved a split among the federal circuits over the meaning of ne exeat clauses in child custody orders.    Abbott v. Abbott, U.S. (2010); United States Supreme Court, May 20, 2010
