Parental Kidnapping

Parental kidnapping is an issue that has received a lot of attention in the media. As a result of this publicity, legislation has been passed in every state and by the federal government trying to stop this ugly situation. If you are unhappy with a court ruling on parenting or visitation, do not take the law into your own hands by taking or keeping your children in violation of a court order. Sooner or later, you will be caught. When you are caught, the judge in your divorce case will not be pleased. Also, the judge in your criminal trial will be unpleasant as well.

Many parents who kidnap their children lose their parenting rights for a period of time. Some go to jail, which also hampers visitation. The kidnapping parent can be limited to supervised visitation – which means the children can only visit that parent while under the supervision of an agency or other person that the court trusts – with the visiting parent usually required to pay a fee to the supervisor who keeps an eye on that parent. You do not want this.

If your children have been taken or held by their other parent in violation of a court order or against your will in the absence of any court order, you need to get legal help right away. There are many ways to track down kidnapping parents, and it is usually easier to find them when the trail is still fresh.
