Parental child abduction refers to when a parent takes, detains, or conceals a child from the other parent.Parental child abduction may occur in circumstances where parents are separated. It is not uncommon for other family members to assist the abducting parent in the process of abducting the child.

In some child abduction cases a parent abducts a child who is the subject of custody orders by the Family Court. This may be done in contravention of custody orders made by the Family Court.   the children may become subject to a recovery order to return the children.

A recovery order can authorise or direct a person or persons, such as police officers, to take appropriate action to find, recover and deliver a child to a person ordered by the Family Court.
