If you’ve ever wondered how to lose your rights to visit with your child, it’s really not that easy to do – in the US.
And it’s not necessarily any easier to do in Spain.
But it’s happened to a Spanish father there.
The father of a 10 year old boy took his son along to participate in the famous “running of the bulls” festivities.
The child was photographed and filmed with the bulls running just behind him.
The rules require that runners be 18 years of age.
Upon learning what had happened, the mother went straight to the police.
And in the end, a Spanish judge simply revoked the father’s rights of visitation.
Didn’t order supervised visitation, didn’t impose restrictions as to time and place and activities. Just out and out revoked them.
The father was also fined.
