Custodial Interference or Parental Kidnapping
In Idaho, interfering with child custody and visitation orders is against the law. If your custody rights are being threatened, you want experienced custody attorney Merrilee A. Parr.
Types of Custodial Interference
Custodial interference happens when a parent interferes with custody rights in some way, including
- Alleging that the child does not want to see his or her other parent
- Visiting the child when the other parent is supposed to have custody
- Not complying with agreements such as frequently causing the child to miss extracurricular activities
- Booking the child for activities during visitation time with the noncustodial parent so the parent and child cannot spend time together
- Refusing to return the child to his or her primary residence
- Refusing to allow the child to visit the other parent
- Failing to return the child as scheduled, whether it be hours or days
