Child custody battles, like those that take place in Florida courtrooms, often leave one parent unhappy with the outcome. While this feeling is common at first, most parents eventually accept the child custody arrangement. Recently, one mother refused to accept the court´s decision concerning her son´s time with his father, and she now faces criminal charges.
On Jan. 24, the father of a 3-year-old dropped his son off at the child´s mother´s residence with the understanding that he would pick him up again on Jan. 28. When the father arrived four days later to retrieve the child, the residence was empty, and an eviction notice was posted on the door. For obvious reasons, this alarmed the child´s father, and he notified local authorities after he was unable to contact his ex-partner.
