WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS FOR THE RETURN OF
CHILDREN WRONGFULLY REMOVED
When a parent removes a child from one state to another state within the Unites States, the left-behind parent may file a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus for the immediate return of the child.
In order for a Florida court to grant the writ for the immediate return of the child, the Court must find that the removal of the child from his/her home state was “wrongful”. The removal of a child is wrongful if it is in violation of an agreement of the parties or a custody order entered in the state of residence. The “custody order”must have been entered in substantial compliance with the due process rights of “notice and opportunity to be heard”.
If your child has been removed from his/her home state and has been brought to Florida without your permission or an order of the court contact Sallato & Associates, PA. We have the experience to know when it will be proper to file the Writ of Habeas Corpus and how to successfully present it to the Florida court.
