Emergency Abduction Prevention Measures
May 19, 2021 – Child custody matters are incredibly sensitive cases, especially when there is the threat that one parent will take away the child. This is often referred to as parental abduction or parental kidnapping. These are serious cases that must be acted on quickly by parents, their attorneys, and the courts.
In this matter, a client sought our help after their ex filed an Emergency Motion for Abduction Prevention Measures. The ex-partner accused our client of, essentially, abducting the minor children. This was a complex case that not only involved allegations of parental kidnapping but there was documentation of domestic violence among other issues.
Our Family Law Team jumped into action when the firm took on this case. Our attorneys had limited time to prepare for court, but they developed a strong case for our client nevertheless. As a result of their pragmatic efforts, the judge found in favor of our client. While there is more to be worked out for this family, they are headed in the direction of a resolution.
