    What protection can the US provide for an American Child in Aus w internation divorce

    Hi,
    I am an Indian American Citizen and my Husband is an Indian Australian citizen.
    We have been married for 3 years and have a child together. Our child was born in India, but he is a Naturalized American Citizen. I have raised him alone since he was born (sep 2010)
    My husband and I have been having problems and have been separated for a while now. I am staying with my parents in India and he is in australia
    He keeps telling me to come back but I am afraid that he will take our son away from me.
    Apparently the US embassy cannot protect my son in that case because he is 50% Australian by birth. They can only protect me. What protection do I and my son have as United States Citizens?

    If you are afraid he will take your son, why would you agree to come back to him? No matter what legal protections a country can afford you, it would be difficult to stop him from kidnapping his child if that is what his intent is to do.
