The counsel representing the respondent stated that the appellant no. 1 had spent more than nine years in the United States. She spent eight years in the United States after her marriage to him. The counsel pointed to the notice of the court that both parties signed a consent allowing the child to travel to India from February 5th to September 26th, 2019. The counsel argued that, in view of the rise in international parental child abductions from the United States, the Immigration Authorities in the United States do not permit a minor US citizen to leave the country with only one parent without the express approval of the non-traveling parent. The counsel further pointed out that no changes to the consent document were considered between the parties after it was signed. The counsel further argued that documentation on file will reveal that return tickets for September 26th, 2019 were also booked in accordance with the overseas travel consent form. The counsel submitted that appellant no. 1 has failed to return the minor son to the United States in breach of the foreign travel consent, resulting in the minor’s illegal detention in India.
