Hello Claudia,My name isXXXXX a licensed attorney and glad to try and help out.Under the scenario you have outlined, both parents would potentially be liable for an allegation of abandonment, pursuant to California Family Code §§ 7820-7829. If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me.I hope all works out for you.
Thank you.. Is there something smarter that my friend can do legally to make the mom stay and live with the child? Like i said, they both have custody but the mom moved to Mexico and left the child with dad and he is not sure what to do because the child is abusing him physically and emotionally... Can my friend make the courts take her passport so she doesn't leave without her child?
Ok.. Thank you very much for your help.
