Don’t you just love section 4.
LITIGANTS NOT REQUIRED.
The Court is authorized to act on its OWN motion.
So mom or dad don’t even have to ask. The court can just order child protection measures.
SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE.
” Sec. 4. (1) A court on its own motion may order abduction prevention measures in a child-custody proceeding if the court finds that the evidence establishes a credible risk of abduction of the child.”
True, that is bad, but Section 4(2) may be just as bad.
That is a very broad definition on who can file for action.
What ‘other individuals or entities’ are they talking about?
Department of Social Services?
Seems to be a very broad list.
(2) A party to a child-custody determination or another individual or entity having a right under the law of this state or any other state to seek a child-custody determination for the child may file a petition seeking abduction prevention measures to protect the child under this act.
