If you share custody of a child and you are worried that the other parent may abduct your child and take him/her out of the country, there are several things you should do to facilitate a reunion with your child should this horrible event occur. If you are frightened about an abduction of your children, speak to a lawyer and discuss your fears with them to and get valuable advice.
-You should keep a current and up-to-date list of all telephone numbers and addresses of the other parent's relatives, friends and business associates both in the united states and abroad.
-You should keep a list of all important information on the other parent. Things like social security, bank account, and driver's licence numbers, passport information, and even vehicle information like color, make and license plate number.
-Update your child's information and take full face color photographs at least every 6 months.
-Get a recent photograph of the other parent to help in locating him/her all over the world.
-Keep an updated record of your child's information and description including any special characteristics such as scars or birthmarks.
Another precaution would be to prepare your children in case of an emergency. Have them memorize your phone number and other important numbers. Practice making long distance and collect phone calls with your children. Instruct them on what to do and who to contact if anything unusual happens, even if it's with a trusted parent.
