What to Do If Your Minor Child Was Taken Away by the Other Parent

Listen as Kissimmee family law attorney, Linda Gruszynski explains what you can do if you are the parent of a minor child whose other parent has left with that child. 

It is important to know that as the mother of a child, you have the legal right to the child by nature.  As the father, if the child was not born during marriage to the mother, then you must establish paternity in order to exercise legal rights as the father.  

Once you have established paternity by filing a petition with the court, you can then file a motion for an emergency pick up order.  A previous client was successful in doing this, as the mother had taken the child to a foreign country that was experiencing a civil war.  This created a dangerous situation for the child. 

The court entered an order to grant the emergency pick up, and the mother was required to return to the United States and return the child to the father.  Watch the video to learn more.

Testimonials

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
