Child abduction cases can be scary and stressful. Many custody disputes can lead to one parent absconding with a child, but the law provides methods for helping bring the child back. Law enforcement typically does not intervene in family law matters, but they will do so when a child has been abducted. Parental abduction cases often involve local and federal law enforcement authorities.
Once a child is located and returned, you will want to do whatever you can to prevent this from happening in the future. This could include going through the court system to adjust custody rights for the parent responsible for the abduction.
It may also be necessary to secure an order of protection from the court to keep the other parent from being around you or the child.
If a parent abducts a child and takes then across an international border, your attorney will work with law enforcement and authorities in that country. If there is an international treaty between the US and that country, your attorney will work to ensure it is enforced.
