This is general information and not legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is formed. This is for educational purposes only.
Unless there is a custody & visitation order in place, this is not considered kidnapping. Each parent has a right to make decisions about your child.
Typically, you can't get a custody & visitation order unless you file for divorce. If that is something you're contemplating, I can give you more information about that.
Well, that seems like a bit of a puzzle. If the police can't do anything, there are no "charges." And you cannot withdraw a police report - it's just a report.
Would you like to tell me a little more about what the brother seems to want?
Would you want to explain that although the police took a report, there are no charges that will come out of it?
No, it is certainly not normal. You might consider seeking a protective order to require contact with your son. Is that something you think you might want to pursue?
If you give me the name of your city and county, I can look for your local protective order website.
Okay. I'm going to do some research and I'll be right back.
Here is the Texas Attorney General website explaining protective orders, with a "Protective Order Kit." Paragraph 6(h) can be tailored to your circumstances, and Paragraph 9 relates the order you can request re: not removing your child from your care or the court's jurisdiction.
Why don't you take a look at that while I research San Antonio, Bexar County.
Here is the official Bexar County protective order site.
Are you satisfied with the information I’ve provided you?
You probably appreciate that if you decide to pursue a protective order route, it may negatively impact your marital relationship. But each marriage has its own dynamics, and you know best how to proceed.
