To protect them from an abusive parent, would you or would you abide by court orders?

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

I knew a guy who did this--took his daughter to Central America. He got caught and was sentenced to 22 years while the coke head mother got the child back.

I'm a very hard person. And I've already shown it, so I didn't have to go underground. And no, I didn't go by court orders. I made it very clear to the attorneys and the judge that this is my life and this is my childrens life. Nobody was going to insist on anything rediculous regarding any of i.

 Yes.  I would risk jail for the safety of my kids.

Yes I would.  My first responsibility is to my child, not to the government.  I have a friend who abided by the court order (while fighting it), knowing that her daughter had been sexually abused as a baby, which is why she left in the first place.  The excuse of a father raped his 9 year old daughter several times.  There is no way in heck Il would EVER let that happen to my child.  Of course, I would have stabbed him as another friend of mine did when she discovered what her husband had done to their infant daughter, so that custody would have been a non-issue in the first place.

It depends on the situation. Getting caught runs a great risk of the child going back to the abusive parent, exclusively.

 I hope the court system would protect my children but I know that's not always the case. My step-mom took off with my half brother after she lost custody.

Quoting Jack_Squat:

 I agree. I was just thinking that....

If I was going to risk jail to protect my child from an abuser, I'd take the jail time and kill the abuser. That way my child would surely be safe, even if I were locked up.
