Mother sought in Texas child custody case

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Going through a divorce is often a highly emotional experience for those involved. It can be even more stressful when children are involved. Many couples in Texas and throughout the country attempt to negotiate child custody agreements that are in the best interest of their children. In most cases, these agreements are properly followed and all parties continue with their day-to-day activities. However, when a former spouse disregards the terms of an agreement, a difficult situation can quickly worsen.

A young boy from Central Texas has been missing since September. Local police are searching for the boy's mother, whom they believe has the child with her. They have a warrant for the arrest of the mother with the charge of interference with child custody. The mother allegedly took the child after she picked him up from his home for a visit.

The boy's father had been given full custody of the child a month prior to his disappearance. He believes the mother took the child because of this decision. The mother had visitation rights, but The Center for Missing and Exploited Children is now involved in the search for the boy since she is in violation of the custody agreement.

The topic of child custody is a main area of concern in any divorce proceedings where children are involved. Texas residents seeking a divorce want to protect their children from additional emotional stress. Many individuals in these situations seek the advice of an experienced family law attorney to help them deal with all the complexities surrounding custodial issues.
