What are the parental kidnapping laws in Georgia?

Not all those who face parental kidnapping are those with malicious or irresponsible intentions. Some parents find that they can get in trouble with the law when they are only doing what they believe is best for their children.

You may not be able to take them out of the state of Georgia unless the court gives you permission to do so, and you may not be able to leave the country with them.

If doing so would interfere with the rules already laid out in your child custody agreement, you would be breaking the law by doing this, and you may face parental kidnapping charges.

Help! My Lawyer Won't Let Me Settle My Case

She walked out of his office more frustrated with her attorney than she was with her soon-to-be ex-husband. They had finally found a moment away from their new interests and had come to an agreement on everything. The children, the finances (including the credit card debt), the retirement accounts; everything had gotten sorted out. All that was left was to sign the documents and get them to the Court for the Judge's signature. Then they could start to put all of this behind them.

When the Pillars of Marriage Begin to Crumble

What better way is there to spend my time as a newly-wed than talking about divorce? During the months leading up to my nuptials, my husband and I enrolled in a pre-marital counseling course. The course included eight couples to one counselor and a broad discussion on how to build and maintain a successful marriage.

Each pillar was a lesson in the course and at the end of each lesson, we reviewed behaviors of married couples that were likely to bring down that respective pillar and trigger a divorce.
