Torrance Parental Kidnapping Lawyer

What Constitutes Parental Kidnapping in California?

Most custody arrangements set up physical boundaries for both parents when spending time with the child. Breaking these orders is a direct violation of the law and can result in serious repercussions. Even if custody orders do not currently exist, the act of parental kidnapping can be enough to restrict the offending parent’s future relationship with the child.

The act of parental kidnapping can violate custody orders already in place, or it can cause the court to forfeit that parent’s right to any degree of custody. Whatever your situation, don’t wait until something serious to get help.

There are three main factors that determine whether parental kidnapping occurred, including:

  • The legal status of the offending parent
  • Whether court orders exist regarding custody
  • The intent of the offending parent
