Arlington County Travel Tip: Keep your kids out of Arlington Virginia — Even to Visit

24 Dec

We have people that come to Arlington County and stay in a hotel overnight and allegedly abuse their kids or neglect their kids , and Arlington has jurisdiction over that case, even if they don’t have any prior connection ~ to Arlington” — Unnamed Official of Arlington County.

[Legal tip: Actually under the UCCJEA they only have emergency jurisdiction, which is temporary, and they still have to have reasons beyond simply allegations of abuse or neglect.  So, it is likely even the baby Jesus would not have made it out of Arlington, and poor Mary would have lost her child if she were just visiting Arlington.   With that thought: Merry Christmas]
