Retrieving Children Who Have Been Taken Out of State
Parental abduction occurs when one of a child's parents violates the other parent's rights by taking the child out of state without permission. If your child has been abducted, an experienced child custody lawyer can help you get the courts involved right away.
We are attorneys Donn Prokopius and Jeremy Beasley. Based in Las Vegas, we help clients throughout Southern Nevada protect their children and their own parental rights in child abduction cases. We are dedicated to getting these cases resolved as swiftly and decisively as possible.
Moving Quickly to Get Your Child Returned to Nevada
When a child is covered by a custody order and one parent relocates out of state with the child without permission from the court, it is considered parental abduction. Whether or not the parent intended to "abduct" the child, it is a very serious matter.
If your child has been abducted out of state by his or her other parent, we can help you pursue a court order to have the child immediately returned to Nevada.
This is called a pickup order and can be used to get any local law enforcement agency in the United States to retrieve a child and have that child transported back to Nevada. From there, a local family court can decide what to do next.
Handling All Types of Parental Abduction Circumstances
The most extreme parental abduction cases are those in which children are abducted secretly or hidden from local law enforcement. These cases are criminal matters that may result in parental kidnapping charges and other serious criminal consequences.
If a child is abducted out of the country, it may be necessary to file a case under the Hague Convention or another international agreement. We are prepared to handle all circumstances that may arise in a parental abduction case. Please contact us to discuss your concerns.
