It is illegal for a parent to take their child in an attempt to obstruct the other parent’s custodial rights. Removing a child from the United States without permission from the parent with custody is called International Parental Kidnapping, and may be punished very harshly.

The team at Grabel & Associates understands that these kinds of cases are confusing and that family dynamics play a large part in any alleged kidnapping case.

Building a solid defense starts during the investigative stage of your case. As soon as you suspect you’re under investigation, you should contact a premier federal defense attorney. He or she will guide you through the initial stages of your case and help you make wise choices that will shape the outcome of your case. If you moved with the child, you’ll be responsible for proving legal justification for wrongful removal or retention of your child. There are several defenses you may want to assert, including that the non-traveling parent was not exercising custody rights, the non-traveling parent consented to or acquiesced to the move, the child is of sufficient age and maturity and objects to being returned, the child is well-settled in the new environment, there is a serious risk of physical or psychological harm if the child is returned, or fundamental principles relating to the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms do not permit return of the child. Your attorney will analyze all the details of your case to determine if you have a chance of successfully proving legal justification for your actions, based on these common rebuttals to International Parental Kidnapping charges.
