Child abduction and enforcement of foreign orders

Section 28 (5)(b)

Child abduction cases into Ireland on foot of the Child Abduction and Enforcement of Custody Orders Act 1991 are one of a small number of matters for which the grant of legal aid is mandatory, though only for the applicant. No means or merits test is undertaken and no contribution is payable.
