As parents, we wanted nothing more than the safety and well-being of our children. This is why it can be incredibly frightening to not have our children under our care for a certain amount of time. Following a divorce or breakup, children are commonly at the center of all the arguments. This is why custody agreements are put in place, in order to ensure children have a considerable amount of time with either parent.

Unfortunately, however, certain situations may arise in which we feel our children are put into immediate danger. If this occurs, it is our duty and responsibility as parents to do everything in our power to protect our children from any immediate harm. This is why states allow emergency custody orders to be petitioned, in which you may obtain custody of your child without any notice to the other party. In this process, you must be able to prove, with concrete evidence, that you believe your child is in serious danger when he was she is in the care of your ex. Examples of immediate and clear harm include drug and alcohol use, physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, and more. If the judge grants use emergency custody, you will later have to attend a hearing, in which the opposing side will present his or her case.
