Emergency Custody Lawyer in Tampa serving all of Hillsborough County and surrounding communities

Lawyer for emergency custodyOne of the most difficult concepts for parties to understand is what constitutes grounds for emergency relief in a Florida Family Law Case. Generally, a court is against emergency orders because they do not provide an adequate opportunity to the other party to appear and respond. In general, the law has many very specific requirements and emergency relief is rarely granted. In a few rare cases the filing party must show clear evidence of:

  1. Recent incidence of child abuse, neglect or spousal abuse or spousal rape.
  2. Credible threats by a parent to remove the child from the residence or school.
  3. Evidence of drug use or alcohol abuse by the other parent.
