Emergency Child Protection

Emergency child protection is an option in cases where the physical safety, health or well-being of a child is threatened.

If you believe that your child is in danger — whether that danger is physical or emotional — there are steps you can take now to secure your child's safety.

At Scardina Law, we can help you file an emergency motion to restrict parenting time. Based on the threat to the child, these are fast-moving cases. Once a motion is filed, a hearing is scheduled within 14 days.

Typical reasons why a parent may seek an emergency child protection order include:

  • Drug abuse
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Mental health issues
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Neglect

Abduction: An emergency motion to restrict parenting time can also be used in cases where there is a threat of abduction. If you believe that your child is at risk for being abducted by your ex, you should take immediate legal action. Signs of abduction may include selling a home, closing a bank account, closing ties to a community, etc.
