Child custody disputes are an unfortunate side effect of divorce proceedings. As much as both parents would like to maintain primary physical custody of their children, this simply cannot be the case. While the courts and legal counselors do everything in their power to make sure that child custody hearings are fair, and that primary custody is granted to the right parent, the outcome is not always ideal for all concerned parties. However, it’s important that non-custodial parents honor the court’s decision in these cases.
A Wisconsin man has been taken into police custody after he allegedly absconded with his 3-month-old son. The child’s mother reported the infant boy missing in the early morning and informed the police that she did not expect that the child was in danger. Eventually, the boy’s father was apprehended in Michigan in the early afternoon after having driven through several states. The father reportedly did not resist arrest. He was to be extradited to Wisconsin. Police said the child was unharmed.
