    Default How to Keep Custody After Being Ordered to Return the Children to the Other Parent

    My friend is trying to keep his kids. In 2016 early June my friend went to pick up his kids from the mother and he took them to Texas where he lives. The too had agreed on him bringing the kids back at the end of the summer but he kept them in Texas and they started school.they have been in Texas about 11 months now.

    The father had court but over the phone. Turns out the mom put a warrant on him because he took the kids she placed the warrant in February . At this point would he still be able to get custody of the kids if the warrant is lifted by any chance or if he pleds not guilty. He has a hearing July 13 2017. The judge told him to have the kids back to the mother by June 10 due to school letting out June 6.

    What can he do to keep his kids once he drops them?does he file for custody in Texas?what are his options?

    He's already been ordered to return the children to their mother - I'd say that's going to put a dampener on ANY hope he may have had for keeping custody.

    Were they married? Has he been legally declared the father?

    Dude, you're so far removed from the situation it's not even funny. Get one of the involved parties to come here, thanks.
