Bermuda Husband and Wife have a five year old Son together.
Husband and Wife divorce.
Bermuda family court awards custody of Son to Husband.
Wife abducts Son and deprives Husband of any contact with Son for nine years. It appears that Wife and Son have been living in various locations in Florida since 2003, along with Son’s younger half-sister.
Mother reportedly has been arrested on more than one occasion for theft.
Son is located in a homeless shelter in western Florida, and authorities arrange for Son to be reunited with Husband.
Husband travels to the US for his first contact with Son in years. They enjoy spending several precious hours together.
But immediately prior to a scheduled mandatory US court appearance, Wife and Son disappear again.
This despite Husband’s application for Son’s return to Bermuda under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
