My wife took my wonderful 4 year old daughter to Brazil in September 2009 for a holiday. Since then she has given a string of excuses for not returning. In that time her 2 year visa expired and though I have paid for another this has been refused. I am getting a really hard time from my wife, demanding money yet not supporting the visa refusal appeal etc I sometimes feel as if my life is destroyed and my elderley mother who had built a strong relationship with her little grand-daughter is devastated. My wife seems completely unconcerned and makes claims about me being a bad father and husband, almost all of which have absolutely no foundation at all.
There is a Hague application but I am really unsure about what will happen. It all goes very slowly. I am also concerned about my daughter´s safety as my wife has moved from her family house and I am unsure of her exact location. She has given me a phone that is not answered and is making contact with my daughter very hard or impossible.

Hello Justin and Chris I havenīt checked for ages for reply. How is your case going? Itīs been 10 months since I saw my son last time and I donīt have a date of court hearing yet! I hired private lawyer in Brazil but it was just a loss of money because the case is in attorney generalīs office. And they have their own lawyer dealing with the case but I donīt have contact with him only with the central authority. The lawyer I paid couldnīt do anything for me. He just provided me with log in details so that I can view my case online anytime I want. Do you have that too? If not you might be able to request it. I donīt know about French Guiana but Brazil is very very slow. I am so worried that I wonīt get my little boy back. Take care all the best...

Dear Tim I am sorry to hear that. And believe me I know just how you feel. My son has been in Brazil for almost a year I submited Hague application 2 weeks after he left and reported it to the police on second day and yet nothing is happening. My husband lives in Brazil great life and I am just waiting and waiting... Did anyone win Hague case in Brazil before???

Hello Tim Just to let you know I won the case after a year and I am now back in England. I got great support from the Central Authorities. How long did you take to submit your application? Did they locate your child???
