Handling CUstody Disputes
Custody Dispute Checklist
Tell the parties that without a court order specifically directing law enforcement to take action, you (as a peace officer) can only:
Complete a welfare check on the child(ren), and take any appropriate action as a result of that welfare check
Interview all the parties to determine whether there is probable cause to believe that there is a risk of abduction, risk of flight with the child(ren), or other risks.
Does there appear to be such a risk?
