Ilias Giannatsis, Lawyer
On 2 of February 2023 the High Court of Justice- Family Division heard the application submitted by our client for the return of her 8 years old son, from England, where his father had unlawfully and without her consent moved him, to Greece, where she was living herself. The Court, finding that the mother, despite the accusations of the father, was not dangerous for the child, rejected his objection and accepted the mother’s application ordering at the same day the way that he should return with her to Greece. Our firm had the honor to support the mother at the application and being her legal counsel in Greece managed to realize in collaboration with Dawson Cornwell Law Firm in London the return of the child.
