San Jose Child Abduction Attorney
Parental abduction of a child by the non-custodial mother or father violates the provisions of a joint child custody or visitation stipulation and requires prompt action. To get your child back, you first need to obtain sole custody rights before the police will act to find your child. If your former spouse has abducted your child, it is vitally important that you talk about this parental abduction with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.

As a result, we know exactly how to proceed to get your child back. In this crisis, there are several actions, which speed the process of returning your child to you.
1.) Speak with a family law attorney immediately.

A non-custodial parent who takes a child severely damages his or her custody rights, and may lose them altogether, depending on circumstances and the ruling of the court. In addition, criminal charges such as kidnapping may also be pursued. In any case, consequences for these actions can be severe.
