Often, when there is a child custody order in place, or even when a custody hearing is pending, one parent may fear that the other parent will attempt to circumvent the court and remove the child without consent, or fail to return the child following a routine visit.
According to the National Center for missing & exploited children, they estimate that 200,000 families become victims of this horrific crime each year.
Currently, few laws protect families against the risk of Parental Abduction and because of this, families are being destroyed every day by the other parent when they are simply allowed to leave the Country without being cross referenced before boarding an International flight.
We the undersigned, call on the United States Congress to write into law:
An Illinois and or federal Judicial Mandate that orders any and all family law judges to enter any and all visitation and/or any and all custody orders into the N.C.I.C. (National Crime Intelligence Computer) and/or to TSA (Transportation Security Administration) Immediately upon rendering a order of the court, cross referencing all parties involved (Named subject children and both spouses/parents via their identifying information, Social Security Number, Drivers license, and passports foreign and domestic).
So in the event that either parent attempts to leave the state or country with a child, TSA (Transportation Security Administration) must enter the traveling child's name into their system and or into the national crime intelligence computer (N.C.I.C.) to ensure the parent is not in violation of a “current” custody order or visitation order.
If a violation is found, TSA (Transportation Security Administration) and all airport security should (1) not allow the child to board the plane and (2) contact law enforcement immediately.
