Family Lawyer The Hague
Lawyer and mediator

For 19 years, I have been working as a lawyer. Since 2022, I have been working under the name Family Lawyer The Hague. I mostly assist expats residing in the Netherlands or whose child or ex-partner resides in the Netherlands.

I have been working on cases of family law  and juvenile law, as well as criminal law and psychiatric patient law. Currently I work only as a lawyer or mediator in family law cases.

In particular, I write divorce covenants and parenting plans. Often parties already have good ideas of how they want to shape the future and I help them with the final details. Sometimes parties have disputes that they cannot resolve and I can use my experience to help the parties reach a solution.

Also, I help parents who wish to relocate with their child, or who seek permission from the other parent or the court for a holiday with a child, or permission to obtain a passport for a child. I can assist parents to create a good (international) visitation schedule or (international) parenting plan.

In a case of parental child abduction, you can contact me for advice or to start a return procedure at the court of The Hague, in The Netherlands. You can read more about this subject on
