Parental Kidnapping

Updated:

If there is a custody order in place, can I take my kids out of the state?

It depends on what your order says. If your order specifically says you can leave the state with your children, you can do so. Otherwise, you may need to get the other parent’s permission or a judge to change your order before leaving the state with your kids.
