Child custody: Girl safe after possible kidnapping

Having a family together is the dream of many couples. However, the happily ever after is hard to attain for many couples, and children are sometimes caught in the middle of a child custody dispute. There are countless California families who do find a way to ensure that the needs of their children are met regardless of the relationship between the parents.

Recently, it appears that one mother could not accept the fact that she was not awarded custody of her young daughter. According to a police report on a social media site, a 7-year-old girl was taken from her school by her biological mother. The woman purportedly does not have legal physical custody of the child and was not granted permission to remove the girl from school grounds. An Amber Alert was issued shortly after it was discovered that the girl was missing.

Just a few hours after the alert was issued, police reported that both the child and her mother were found safe. The woman was taken into police custody. Presumably the child was returned to her legal guardian. The 34-year-old mother may now face charges of kidnapping in regard to this case.

It is unknown why the woman attempted to take the girl nor why she was not granted child custody of her daughter. However, she may now have a much more difficult time being granted access to her daughter based on this incident. California parents who are struggling to determine the best living situation for their children may benefit from the guidance provided by an experienced family law attorney who can help them arrive at the parenting plan that works best for their unique family circumstances.
