Texas Parental Child Abduction Act sign now

Parental Child Abduction Act

If a party (such as your ex-spouse) refuses to return your child, you may seek relief under the Texas Parental Child Abduction Act (T.P.C.A.A.).

Under this statute, enforcement by local and state police authorities are mandatory and any violation of such act is considered a criminal offense. Request they assist you in the return of the child under the guideline of the T.P.C.A.A.
This statute is seeking attachment with CHAPTER 42 of the State of Texas Civil Liability for Interference with Possessory Interest in Child as an addendum superceding any previous legislation within this regard.

Section 1: Therefore, making the act of withholding, or preventing physical access to and/or in the return of the child a criminal offense punishable in accordance with the Texas Penal Code Chapter 20 Kidnapping and Unlawful Restraint if the child is not surrendered no later than the third date from such action unto:
a). Natural Mother or Father if paternity has been established prior.
b). Legal Guardian as set forth by the Parent, Conservator, Child Protective Services or Court.
c). Step Mother or Father if decreed by Court, Child Protective Services, parent or guardian.
d). God Parent or family member, or any other party authorized as guardian by parent, Court, and Child Protective Service.
e). Any party authorized by parent, guardian, court or Child Protective Service as describe within the parameters of Texas Standard Visitation Code Title 5 The Parent-Child Relationship and the Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship.

Under this proposed law. Parameters are to be met before filing such allegations and enforcement action is ensued. These measures are to ensure and preserve equality in our courts and families. We are asking that any action of withholding a child from the other parent, guardian, custodian as described in Section 1 to be considered illegal.

Section 2: We ask that is be unlawful for a Mother, Father, Guardian, or Custodian of the child recognized as in Section 1 to change the current residence or school of the child without proper notification as set forth in section 2 and 3 of the T.P.C.A.A. It is furthermore considered a violation and is a criminal act to relocate the primary residence and school of the child outside of the residing county as described in the Texas Chapter 103. Venue and Transfer of Original Proceedings 103.001 (c) as long as there has not been prior filings with local police and/or hospital officials of:
a). Criminal acts as set forth by the Texas Penal Code.
b). Physical and mental abuse.
c). Child endangerment and/or neglect.
d). Child Protective Services Investigation filings.

Section 3: Prior written certified return receipt notification is to be obtained no less thirty days prior to and no more than three days after the actual relocating date.The other parent (if legally separated and/or filing for divorce), guardian, legal conservator and school.
This notification must disclose:
a). New address and school, if there are no known prior instances of abuse or neglect that have been filed with any law enforcement agency or hospital official preceding the relocating date.
*This notification does not include the disclosure of allocation information if a Restraining Order or Protective Order is enacted prior to relocation.
b). If no such orders or reports are filed as in Sections 1 and 2 of the T.P.C.A.A. then the conservator in possession must disclose current address, telephone number, name of school and school address to the other parent, conservator, or legal guardian.


Insist law enforcement agencies that they enforce the PCAA Statute. Local law enforcement is bound by law to enforce the PCAA as well as similar legislation PKPA, Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act 28 USC Sec. 1738A. With the inclusion of this Texas Parental Child Abduction Act. Law enforcement agencies and District Attorneys will not be able to selectively enforce it or to decide the merits of any specific case or situation where the TPCAA and PKPA is applicable. This law is to be established to prevent malicious actions, PAS (Parental Alienation Syndrome) and psychological damage to all parties involved.Under this proposed law. Parameters are to be met before filing such allegations and enforcement action is ensued. These measures are to ensure and preserve equality in our courts.

WE also employ an addendum to the existing Texas Amber Alert System. http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/director_staff/public_information/Fast_facts/Amber\%20Alert.pdf
We ask that in the instance of such a violation per the proposed T.C.P.P.A. that the State of Texas Department of Public Safety enact the IAN ALERT SYSTEM.
This is in honor of seven-year-old Ian-Paul Castillo. In July 2003,
Ian-Paul Castillo was abducted by his mother, from a Houston daycare facility. No identification was given at the time of his disappearance, nor did the facility notice he was missing until six hours later. Houston Police could not pursue and hence, no Amber Alert was issued. It took his father (a skip-tracer) countless man-hours, months and sleepless nights utilizing various locating services to find him. Ian was not found until six months later, over 120 miles west of Houston, Texas. Emotionally scarred and no longer innocent. The psychological and financial damage resulting from the lack of this proposed alert system in this case is irreparable. Countless lives destroyed, broken homes, bankrupt finances, and suicides can be prevented. Thus relieving the burden of taxpayer responsibility upon our Family Court System alleviating backlogged custody and divorce cases deemed non-servable due to location information.

We the Citizens of the State of Texas ask our Texas Legislative members and Governor Rick Perry to enact our request to stop Parental Child Abduction and put forth our proposal for the T.C.P.A.A. to become law.
We request the Texas Department of Public Safety to enact the IAN ALERT system as a part of the Texas Amber Alert system. Marking a difference between parental child abduction and non-parental child abduction. This will save our families, our finances, and our lives.
