What is the name of your state? Ohio
My husband is the non-custodial parent of two teenagers. We will have them with us for two and a half weeks. I planned to take my stepdaughter, turning 15, out of town as a birthday gift. Her biological mother, legal guardian, is threatening to file kidnapping charges against me because she does not trust me, and to call the missing children's hotline. She will be aware of our whereabouts, and scheduled time to return home. She will have the number of our hotel, as well as my stepdaughter's cellphone number. We have talked to her local police department, who have said they would not treat this as kidnapping, but as a civil case. My husband's attorney feels that, during those two weeks, my husband acts as custodial parent, and has the right to give me permission to take my daughter on this trip.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? Can my husband be taken to court for contempt of court charges? Can I be hit with felony charges for taking her?
