4 children returned to their mother after going missing with dad

Parental kidnapping and failing to return children back to their custodial parent is a very serious situation. Children are placed into certain homes at the request of the court or after trials debating where they'll be safest and most secure. When one parent tries to take the children away or prevents them from seeing the other, it's not in line with the court's order and can set up the offending parent for fines and potentially time in prison.

Four children who went missing with their father have been returned to their mother in Georgia. An Aug. 22 report states that the children's 32-year-old father took them away for vacation on June 22 but never returned them to their mother.

Their mother spoke to the news asking for their safe return. In a prior agreement with the children's father, she said that the children's father was allowed to take the children away on a vacation and then return them to her prior to school starting, so they could be ready for the next school year on time. However, when he stopped replying to phone calls and text messages, she began to worry. She and the children's father had not ever married, but they were friendly and had been in a long-term relationship prior to this event.

A warrant was issued for the man's arrest when the children were not returned to the mother when expected. When he later turned up at the health department in Columbus, Georgia, he was arrested and charged with the interference of child custody. The children have since been returned to their mother.

If you find yourself in either parent's position, it's important to have the guidance of an experienced attorney. He or she can advise you of your legal options in your case.
