We can help remedy interstate child abduction issues

Recently on the blog we discussed how the Hague Convention can be utilized to address matters of international child abduction. Successful utilization of this international law is crucial for those who are facing the unthinkable. Those whose children have been taken to another state or another country in contradiction of an existing child custody order are often afraid for their children's well-being and don't know where to turn for help. Although law enforcement's efforts may be beneficial, they are often confined within the bounds of their jurisdiction.

International abduction and the Hague Abduction Convention

Child custody arrangements can vary greatly case-by-case. In some instances, parents share time equally with their children, while other families see a custodial parent who significantly restricts a noncustodial parent's access. In today's highly mobile society, it isn't uncommon for custodial parents to seek to relocate with their children, which may not be inline with an established custody plan. Although these parents may be able to get court authorization for one of these moves, sometimes parents take their children across state lines or across international borders with the intent of disrupting a child custody arrangement. When this happens, abduction has occurred.

The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act

Parents in Florida can go through a lot to reach a child custody and visitation arrangement that they feel meets their child's needs. While some of these issues can be hashed out during negotiations, sometimes they require litigation. Unlike other divorce legal issues, though, child custody disputes can arise a long time after they were initially settled. When one parent fails to abide by a court order regarding child custody and visitation, then child abduction may have occurred.
