Is It Okey To Keep My Daughter Away From The Father Until The Next Hearing In Family Court?
Today’s question comes to us from Donna, and she wants to know if it’s okay for her to keep her daughter away from the father until the next hearing in family court.
Donna has a daughter with a man who also has a child from another relationship. Recently, this man has been arrested for child abuse and neglect. Donna filed an ex parte motion with the court so that she can have her daughter stay with her.
To answer Donna’s question, if you feel your child is in danger from the other parent, it is essential that you take precautions to protect your child.
Now, the man has been arrested and then released, and wants to see the child. If Donna doesn’t feel comfortable, hold onto your daughter until the next hearing with the family court. If you feel like your child is in danger, then that is the only time that I would say it’s okay to go ahead and withhold a child from the other parent in preparation for an appearance in court and in during the interim of your current family law case.
Otherwise, I strongly suggest that you follow the current court order if there is one in place. And if there is not one in place and you wish to keep the child away from the other parent, file the proper motion with the court until such time as the court decides.
I hope this has answered your question, Donna. If any of you have a question about this and want to discuss it further, please go to vegasdivorcemeeting.com.
