There are times when child custody issues can become very complicated and very heated also. Despite efforts to do what is in the best interest of a child, some parents may disobey child custody agreements -- for a wide variety of reasons. Illinois parents involved in a custody situation may want to follow a recent story of the potential consequences that may occur when one parent does not abide by a court ordered custody agreement.
A 27-year-old mother recently fled with her 3-year-old son despite the agreement she had with the child's father. The father had asked the courts to enforce a structured custody schedule because of unspecified issues he was having with the mother. However, when he returned to pick up his son after a visit with the mother, he found an empty apartment. She had taken the boy out of state.
