THE TOP 10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EMERGENCY CHILD CUSTODY ORDERS

1

Emergency custody orders can work if your child has been severely injured by the other party, they can be used to prevent visitation to the abusive parent immediately, rather than waiting a very long time for the court to come to a determination - this can make the difference in the life of a child.

2

Emergency custody orders can be used to prevent a parent from taking the child out of state without parental authorization.  This can get the case into court immediately to prevent a potential parental kidnapping.

3

Child custody orders can force the other side to return the child if the child has been improperly withheld from another parent - this often happens during the summer or holidays and courts can act quickly to prevent withholding of a child.

4

Emergency child custody orders can compel a party to allow law enforcement & the child abduction unit of the DA's office to assist in the recovery of a child.

5

The other parent can be ordered to post a bond to prevent the risk of further interference or abduction of a child from the other.

6

Acting immediately and quickly is important if an emergency arises where a child is withheld from another parent, severely physically abused, sexually abused, or placed in a risk of immediate harm.

7

Failure to act quickly to get an emergency child custody order can weaken a case by making it appear as if the emergency was not truly urgent. The court needs to see quick action on the behalf of the parent in order to effect the protection of the child.

8

Once the emergency child custody order is granted, the order is in effect until further order of the court. This can be a powerful tool to protect a child who has been the victim of abuse or abduction from seeing their abuser and can give the child peace of mind.

9

There will most likely be a return hearing after the initial emergency custody hearing, in which the parties will be referred to attend mediation and the court will then make orders after the ex parte hearing.

10

In the past, the Provinziano and Associates legal team has had a track record of obtaining orders for the prevention of abuse on an ex parte basis for no visitation, supervised visitation, the posting a child of abduction bonds, authorization of law enforcement to enforce orders, the DA Child Abduction unit to assist and we go the extra mile for our clients to assist them in these urgent and time-sensitive cases.
