Mexico – Bernat-case

An international child recovery of two children from Mexico to the United States of America.

Dear IECC,

I wanted to take the time to thank you for all your hard, continuous efforts on my behalf to reunite my children with me.  Obviously being a left behind parent of Internationally Abducted children is something that we will only go through once in our life and have no idea of what to expect, nor how to proceed properly to be reunited with our children.  Having gone through it yourself, I think gives you an inert ability to relate to us on a level that very few can.  Your compassion is extraordinary along with your willingness to fight to save us every dollar you can, which was an unexpected and refreshing surprise for me.

Your choice of the individuals you choose to work with is also unequaled.  All of the individuals you had working with you, for me, were of the highest caliber in their fields and exhibited the utmost professionalism.   Also, the number of contacts you had within foreign governments that were willing to work with us because they wanted to because it was the “right thing to do” was unbelievable.  Your network of people you have created over the years was amazing.

Never having gone through something like this, it was difficult for me to understand your “game plan” at times, but in the end, everything you told me turned out to be true and accurate.  Even though the months I spent without my children seemed like an eternity, I know that there would have been no way to have my children back with me in such a short amount of time without your assistance.

If you ever have a client that would like a reference prior to retaining your services, have a client that is having difficulty understanding why you are proceeding in a particular direction, or have someone that just needs to vent to another individual during the process, please feel free to give them any and all of my personal information in order to contact me.

Words just can’t describe the gratitude I have for you and your services.  Thank you for all you have done for my family.

We strongly discourage taking matters into your own hands. 
The measures could be illegal and may delay your child’s return. 
Attempts to re-abduct your child(ren) violently from any country may:

  • Endanger you, your child(ren) and others;
  • Prejudice any future judicial efforts you might wish to make in the abducted-to-state;
  • Even result in the arrest and imprisonment for many years!, of you, and that of your accomplices.

Finally, there is no guarantee that the chain of violent abductions would end with the one committed by you. 
A parent who has violently re-abducted a child may have to go to extraordinary lengths to conceal his or her whereabouts, living in permanent fear that the child may be violently re-abducted yet again.
If you are contemplating such desperate measures, we advise you to consider the emotional trauma inflicted on a child who is a victim of a violent abduction and a violent re-abduction.
We discourage violent re-abductions not only because it is illegal, but also because of possible psychological harm to the child.

We don’t use illegal methods; we intervene in another way.
Our method of work is strategically un-orthodox, but obviously legal and safe with the assistance of our strong global network.
Your case, needs to be continuously coached, monitored and pushed forward by our organization.
