A CPS Defense Attorney Can Help in Situations Like This
Video Transcribed: What do you do when your kids go for visitation and then they don’t come back? Hello, my name is Ryan Cannonie, I’m an CPS Defense Lawyer with the CPS Investigation Defense Law office.
One thing we see happen often is where we have parents, that one parent has visitation, and when the kids go for visits, they just decide they’re not going to send the kids back.
Well, what is the parent that has custody supposed to do? Well, first thing is get an attorney because there’s going to be a legal process going on and you don’t want to go into that not knowing what you can or can’t do.
Second thing, your attorney’s going to look at filing what we call a writ. Now a writ is an order, you file it. The judge gives an order on it and may set it for hearing.
But, regardless, what you’re saying in that is that you have a right to something, a legal right, already determined, and that someone else is violating that, and you want the court to intervene and make them comply. In this case, the court is intervening and making the other parent bring those kids back to you because they’re supposed to be with you.
Now, like I said, there may be a hearing on this, there may be some negotiations, and sometimes you’ll end up with two attorneys on each side, working out a plea deal on this. Where there’s more of a settlement, a decision, a temporary order.
But this is how you would handle that situation, or how an attorney can help you handle that situation. Please give an Oklahoma DHS attorney a call and we can help you with your legal matters.
