Recovery from Poland 4 yrs on….

In 2014 we rescued little Crystal from notorious kidnapping haven Poland. Another desperate father who’s child was illegally kidnapped by its Polish mother. The father battled the family courts in Poland for over 2 yrs and was the first ever foreign father to be awarded custody in a polish court.

After 2 yrs of listening to wrong advice getting no where with Polish authorities to enforce the orders he decided to contact CARI. The mothers new boyfriend at the time was a registered sex offender in Poland so we had to act fast as the evidence provided was shocking and sickening to say the least.

The polish courts took 2 yrs of searching (so they say but truth is they never do) but couldn’t find Crystal who was being hidden by the mother and grandparents. It took CARI 10 hrs to find Crystal and another 12 days to safely and legally (with Polish court orders, Embassies and lawyers support) recover Crystal back to her habitual residence. In the presence of a British documentary company filming a first ever recovery to show the reality of what left behind parents face and how The Hague Convention continues to fail left behind parents and children stuck abroad. Poland is a notoriously biased and corrupt country when it comes to IPCA. Unfortunately many victim parents put to much of their time and effort into believing the wrong advice.

We can not emphasis just how critical time is in all IPCA cases. The longer you listen to incorrect information, the longer you’ll be without your child. We are actually recover kidnapped children.

Now almost 4 yrs on thanks to her loving father and grandfather Crystal is living a very happy life excelling at school and socially. Her bond with her older sister who was ripped apart from her when she was kidnapped is now stronger then ever.

I’m looking forward to having them on my new podcast coming soon discussing the reality of IPCA among other things with special guests including experts and many parents who will be telling their stories.
