Emergency Abduction Prevention Measures

Family LawAttorney: Bailey D. Nelson

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.

Negotiated Higher Alimony

April 11, 2021 – This client came to Robinson & Henry following an unsuccessful divorce mediation. Essentially beginning anew, our Family Law Team initiated new negotiations with the opposing party.

Our lawyers worked out a larger spousal maintenance payment (alimony) for our client, which will provide peace of mind as they work to rebuild their life after the divorce.

Divorce is never easy, but we successfully drafted a Separation Agreement our client was comfortable with, and overall they were pleased with the outcome.

Past results afford no guarantee of future results; each matter is different and must be judged on its own merits.
