How long can a mother be w/o her child before it becomes abandonment?
Asked Nov 7, 2011, 10:25 AM
My son has joint custody of his daughter (3yrs old) and the mother is now in California and my son has his daughter in Indiana, the mother has been gone for almost 2 weeks and she is uncertain when she will return. She had only spoken to her daughter once since being gone. When will this become an abandonment case? In the state of Indiana how long doesn't she have to be gone with out contact?
