South Carolina Father has visitation with his Children. The parenting order clearly states that Father is required to exercise his visitation within the state of South Carolina (in fact, within the county).
So what does Father do?
Father takes Children to Alabama to visit with relatives – and fails to return Children when ordered to do so.
Alabama law enforcement officers arrest Father on two counts of traveling out of state with a child in violation of a child custody order. And the Children are taken into child protective custody in Alabama.
Father is transferred to jail in South Carolina.
The violated custody and visitation order isn’t even three months old.
Father is off to a good start.
