New York woman kidnaps daughter after child custody ruling

Kidnapping a child is a serious crime. Unfortunately, some parents may feel it is their only way to see their children once certain decisions have been made regarding child custody. However, taking such actions could make a difficult situation even worse, and a parent could end up facing criminal charges in addition to dealing with emotional distress.

One woman in New York is currently facing charges after a similar situation. Reports stated that, earlier in the day, the woman had lost full custody of her 4-year-old child and an Order of Protection was in the works. This ruling undoubtedly caused much upset to the woman, and later that same day, she took her child from a bus and away from the person who was supposed to pick her up. 

Authorities were informed of the situation, and an AMBER Alert was issued. They were able to locate the child and her mother the next morning. The mother was taken into custody, and the child was presumably turned over to her aunt who had custody of the child. It was uncertain what led to the mother losing custody of the child.

Though taking any means necessary to have custody may seem like the only way for some parents to see their children, this approach often does not have beneficial results. However, if individuals choose to take the proper legal channels, they may be able to appeal or work toward changing the terms of their custody arrangements later on. Speaking with experienced New York attorneys may help concerned parents with their child custody situations.
