Boy allegedly abducted from Spokane home by his father

On Behalf of | May 2, 2019 | Child Custody & Visitation

When a couple enters into divorce proceedings in Federal Way, the hope is that they will be able to remain amicable towards each other throughout (as hostility may on serve to slow things down and add to the costs all sides incur). Yet certain elements of such proceedings (such as discussions involving child custody) can often spark emotion. Many divorcing parents may try to draw a proverbial “line in the sand” when it comes to custody and visitation, believing that each individually is best suited to care for their children. One has to wonder if their assertions are motivated less for the love they no doubt feel for their kids than it is their desire to punish their soon-to-be ex-spouses. 

Whatever the reason, the hope is that any rash action on the part of either parent can be avoided. Sadly, such action appears to have led to a father in Spokane abducting his young son. Authorities say that he picked up the boy last week and has not been seen since. It was reported that he did have a gun in his possession when he picked up the boy, yet no word was given on whether or not he threatened anyone with it. Law enforcement officials are now enlisting the public’s assistance in locating the two. 

No one wants to see custody cases devolve into child abductions. Thus, parents are encouraged to do all that they can to ensure that visitation agreements can be reached that are acceptable to both sides. Those who need assistance in coming up with such agreements may want to enlist the help of an experienced family law attorney.
