View Full Version : Grandparents refuse to return child
Just wondering if anyone can help. My sisters' boyfriend dropped off his 10mth old son at his deceased wife's parents house for the wkend. He went back to pick up his DS and the grandparents refused. The poor guy now has to go to court to get a court order for his son to be returned and the police refuse to do anything about it.
Does anyone know if there is another option for him to get his boy back?
isn't this technically kidnapping?
I agree with chelle, surely this is kidnapping!
Tell him to go to the police, they don't have the right to keep him.
I agree with chellegoth, how can the grandparents simply refuse to give him his son back, its just so wrong, first he loses his wife now they want to take away his son. I realise that they are probably still greiving for there daughter & naturally want to be close to her son, there grandson but keeping a little boy from his daddy is a pretty extreme way of doing it. Lets hope that they can work it out for the sake of the little boy now caught in the middle.

let me tell you, unless the grandparents have a custody order (which they more than likely dont by what you have written) there is absolutely no reason for daddy not to be able to get him back. He is the biological dad he has ALL the rights to this child. he is his sole guardian, this IS kidnapping. If the police wont do anything,( which they should do) then go to your local member of parliament, i bet he will be returned straight away!!!!
good luck and keep us posted.
yup, the other girls are right, unless their is some sort of court order in place, the biological parents have ALL rights over the child.
I will definately tell him to go to his MP and hopefully get this sorted out.
The poor bub and his daddy. I still cant believe that bub's grandparents could think that the right thing is to keep him away from his daddy.
Will let you know what happens
Hope he can work this out, its very wrong. :thumbsdown:
Just letting everyone know that the dad got his DS back on Friday and was granted full custody. He decided not to press charges as they are still his son's grandparents.
The grandparents are permitted every 2nd wednesday night to thursday 5pm.
The dad tried an out of court settlement but the grandparents declined as they wanted full custody.
The grandparents should definately consider themselves lucky with having any time with the baby now.
Thanks for your advice.
That's great news and I am sure we all wish him well for his future.
I think the best advice for him now is to remain cautious even with the court appointed access visits.
Unfortunately, your very right
