What Can I Do When the Other Parent Violates a Custody Agreement?
If a parent is refusing to comply with the agreement of a custody settlement we can help as well. A full report and investigation must be made into the alleged infringement of custody issues. This may include the parent moving out of the state or country, the parent refusing to let the other visit or take the children or any other custody issue. In Pennsylvania, several requests can be legally filed with the court. If a parent still refuses to comply with the custody issue they face legal problems.
These problems can include jail time, legal fees, the change in the custody order, or the complete awarding of custody to one parent only. Custody rights and enforcing them are serious issues in the courts of Pennsylvania. The enactment of the Federal Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act (UCCJA) ensures that custody orders are on federal records. This act was passed in the hopes of stopping the rash of custody related abductions and parental kidnappings that were taking place.
