    Default Enforcing a Custody Agreement Across an International Border

    My question involves a child custody case from the State of: California

    I am a father and my son's mother leaves in New Zealand. We came to an verbal agreement that our son would live in California with me. My son has a dual citizenship. I sent him to visit his mother for summer vacation but now she is saying she does not want to send him back. What do I need to do to get him back him and permanently get full custody over him?

    Help! I miss him and want him to come back!!

    A verbal agreement is effectively meaningless.

    You're going to need an attorney - not a message board - since you have a monstrous task ahead of you (and that's assuming you're legally the child's father).

    Some questions:

    How old is your son?
    Where was your son born?
    Where has your son lived during his life, dates please?
