Florida couple fleeing to keep custody of their children

Earlier in the year, Florida's Department of Children and Families discovered a family in Daytona Beach living in what the agency described as deplorable conditions. The family consisted of a couple and two young children, and it now seems that the family is on the run. Official reports claim that the couple have a history of refusing to cooperate with the agency, which is now seeking custody of the five and four-year-old children.

Losing custody of your children is never an ideal situation, and it is understandable that parents will go to great lengths to keep their children. However, fleeing from state agencies is never the right answer, and couples who are concerned about losing custody of their children are encouraged to seek legal alternatives. No good can come from fleeing law enforcement, but with the help of an attorney, you may be able to make a case for maintaining or regaining legal custody of your children, even if they are taken by the state.

It may seem dire if the government attempts or succeeds in taking your children away, but you must always remember that you have rights, and you should not be afraid to exercise them. An attorney who has experience in juvenile dependency hearings can help you build a case to keep or take back custody of your children.

Everybody wants what is best for a child, but what is best for the child can often cause friction between parties. In order to keep your children in your custody, you must prove to the courts that your involvement is in the child's best interests. Consulting with an attorney can help you do this.
