Question: A friend of mine is about to lose his son. His ex wife is planning on taking his to her home country in Indonesia. He has gone about keeping his son here in the U.S. the legal way through the court of law. The judge is quick to grant her permission on taking their son back to Indonesia without even considering his loss. He fears for his child that is a U.S. citizen going back to a third world country. The judge seems to believe that its best for the child to go back with her. His ex wife has already told him she will be leaving in ten days and he will never see his son again.

Answer: If there has been a judicial decision about what is in the best interests of the child, and the judge decided and ordered that it was acceptable for the mother to take the child to Indonesia, a family law attorney should be consulted to attempt an appeal the Judge’s decision.
