December 20, 2023 in Child Custody and Time-Sharing, Child Relocation, Divorce, Paternity Actions

If one parent keeps a child away from the other parent without a court order, in Florida it can be considered a serious legal issue. The law says that if someone, without legal right, knowingly takes or helps someone else take a child away from their parent, it can lead to criminal penalties. This means that if a parent keeps their child away from the other parent without the court’s permission, they could be breaking the law. It’s important to follow legal procedures and court orders when it comes to child custody and visitation rights. Doing things without legal approval can have serious consequences, so contact an experienced family law trial lawyer for advice.
