Expatability Chat

“I had to leave my baby in Dubai and return to the UK”

No, this isn’t me being dramatic: this is the TRUTH for far too many expat parents. 😭

If you move overseas with your child, then spilt up with your partner, you may not be allowed to return home with your child.

Immigration laws may also forbid you from staying in that country.

You are stuck between a rock and a hard place. There is no happy ending.

In this very special podcast episode I have the greatest honour to interview Roz Osborne, the Founder and CEO of GlobalARRK; the only charity specialising in helping stuck parents.

Find out what a stuck parent is, how you can get help if this is you, and how GlobalARRK are working to get the law changed so that abusive and coercive controlling relationships overseas don't damage even more families and children.

Please sign & share this petition to be a part of the change needed to ensure survivors reach safety and justice with their children after an abusive relationship abroad https://change.org/protecthaguevictims
