Children and the Law

If you are trying to serve your daughter for temporary custody of her children and you have the court order but can't find your daughter can you go ahead and take the children if they aren't with her?

If you have a valid court order you may take the children into your care. If the situation warrants the assistance of the local police you should contact them and show them the custody order. It would be better for all involved, especially the children if it could be handled w/o police assistance or negative confrontation.
