According to law in a parental child abduction, the left behind parent is legally the only victim if the child is not returned before child custody ends at age 18. If the child is located after child custody ends at age 18, the child cannot be forced to return to the left behind parent. If the child is located before child custody ends at age 18, the child can be forced to return to the left behind parent (example father), even if they want to stay with the taking parent (example mother). This is because parental child abduction does not have anything to do with children's rights or welfare only parental rights. This is because children are considered chattel (personal property) of the parents from birth until child custody ends at age 18. This is because the courts in other country's (example China, Japan and India) do not enforce a US child custody order.
