Florida’s Child Abduction Prevention Act

As of Saturday, January 1, 2011, Florida’s Child Abduction Prevention Act became effective. The Act is designed to help those who fear a spouse, ex-spouse or family member will remove their child to a foreign state or country.

The Act provides the Florida courts the responsibility to assess risk factors associated with a potential parental child abduction and further allows for judges overseeing high-risk cases of potential abduction to issue court orders that will prevent a child’s abduction from occurring.
