Las Vegas attorney dealing with parental concealment of children
You are no doubt frustrated if your child has not been returned by his or her other parent. In these situations, the police typically will not get involved unless the Court orders them to do so. The first step in this situation is to request that the Court issue an Order commanding the return of the child. The Court will typically rule on these requests quickly. Once the Court rules you will be able to enlist law enforcement to have your children returned. The Court will typically hold a subsequent hearing to determine if the offending parent should be held in contempt of Court for forcing you to go through this process. If held in contempt, the other parent may force jail time and may be required to pay your legal fees.
