If your child has been taken out of your care by the other parent without your permission and they are refusing to return them then you may need to make an Application to the Federal Circuit Court or the Family Court to have them returned to you. There are many factors taken into account by the Court. If successful, the Australian Federal Police will be called upon to locate the other parent and the child and return the child to you. Many factors need to be taken into account by the Court when considering this, very serious, situation.
