According to the California Child Abduction Task Force, family and nonfamily abductions are viewed as forms of child abuse. It is commonly acknowledged that there is psychological trauma inflicted upon a child abducted by a non–family member. It turns out that there is also trauma when a child is abducted by a parent or another family member. Whether children are abducted by a person unknown to the child or by a family member, they suffer serious psychological and emotional trauma.
Tritt & Tritt Family Law Attorneys know that the motive for family abduction often results from a custody dispute over spousal support, child support, anger, revenge, or as an expression of control over the other parent. Children are affected by family abduction and struggle with negative feelings towards both parents that include fear, guilt, shame, confusion, and divided loyalty. Often these children are traumatized, forced into living like fugitives, or plunged into a life of poverty, instability, deprivation, and neglect.
The most common abduction is parental child abduction and it occurs when one parent has unauthorized custody of a child and takes the child. This is illegal and a form of child abuse. Our child abduction attorneys are experts in these matters and we make sure that child abduction in Orange County is dealt with justly and swiftly. The other, less common kind of child abduction occurs when strangers take a child for organ trading, slavery, sexual abuse, human trafficking, adoption, ransom, forced labor, or other unforeseen reasons. Finally, there is ‘infant abduction’ and fetal abduction, where the fetus is stolen; this usually occurs in medical settings.
This is a horrific situation, and our lawyers are very sensitive to the psychological effects this can have on a family. Our child adoption lawyers ensure that things run as smoothly as possible, as we are aware that this is a sensitive time for everyone.
