just a hypothetical question

well i have a VERY overactive imagination and i like to make things up and i was making up in my head running away and then the cops would somehow find me and force me to come home, but they cant do that right? if im an adult? like pretend i ran away and brought my son would they make me come home? or if i ran away without him could they? im not really going to do this i just make up situations in my head!

  • not true..... if you take your child away and not tell the other parent it is parental kidnapping and you can and will get into alot of trouble.... speaking from experience, my husbands ex did it, wasn't pretty in the end... well for her it wasn't. It was stupid thing to do on her part.

  • they can only arrest you if someone files a police report claiming you were "kidnapped". but no, they can't drag you kicking and screaming back to your house :-)

  • they may charge you with kidnapping then if he wanted the baby back

  • If you,with out the baby left(ran away). NO they can not make you come back. But now taking your son with you. They might (depending on your  sercomstanses). They might bring the baby back and put you in jail for kidnapping.

  • no one can MAKE you do anything. As long as you are of age.. 18 in most states... you make your own choices... but you get to face what comes in the after math

  • If you ran away with your son they can't make you come back but legally since you are still married and DH has rights to your DS they can make you give him back
