Customer Question

I would like to know , if there is a high level of domestic violence from the father who resides in Bulgaria and as New Zealand citizens my son and I manage to come back to New Zealand, where we are safe, even if the family court makes a judgement for my son to be returned to Bulgaria, is there anything else (any other institutions who protect abused NZ citizens) who can prevent us going back to Bulgaria. I know that there is the option of appeal but i doubt i will win it based on the long time e spent in Bulgaria trapped and not able to leave as i needed consent from my son's father. I refuse to go back and put my son in danger..Is there anything else or anyone else who can help us remain in New Zealand?
Thank you

Is this a problem where the Hague Convention is being used to return the child to Bulgaria?
