Question: If a parent internationally kidnapped a child and then was determined to have a mental disorder after the child was recovered is that enough for termination? That along with no contact for over 3 years.
Answer: Every case is decided on its merits. Your question cannot be answered in the abstract. You need to talk to an attorney and discuss the specific details of your case, including the age of the child, what you define as kidnapping, whether criminal charges were filed, the custody status of the parent who took the child, and other specifics. There are 3 programs in Arizona that you can use to get some inexpensive legal advice and guidance. One is the Modest Means Program. If you are financially qualified for the program, for a $75 fee, Modest Means offers a one hour consult with an experienced attorney. If you need additional help and the attorney agrees to take your case, the fee charged will not exceed $75 per hour. The telephone number is (866)637-5341. Both the Maricopa and Pima County Bar Associations have lawyer referral programs that offer a 30 minute consult with an experienced attorney. Maricopa County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consult for a fee of $40. The telephone number is (602) 257-4434. Pima County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consultation for a fee of $35. The telephone number is (520) 623-4625. If you do not have sufficient money to pay for a reduced fee consult, you can go elsewhere on this website and apply to see if you qualify for a free lawyer.
