Whether taking one's own child out of the state or out of the country constitutes abduction depends on whether that action violates a court order. Without a divorce petition or a custody order, there is no real legal recourse. That is why it is wise to consult an accomplished Barrington child abduction attorney who has an in-depth knowledge of domestic and international child custody law.
