“We love our son dearly. He’s always come first. He’s our only child… We’re a close family. We’re all about family…” ~ Terese Kristiansen, mother 

(As, Norway: February 14, 2018) A shocking video has gone viral around the world showing a Norweigan police officer chasing a 12-year old boy who is then tackled into the snow, and screaming desperately, as he is dragged off into state care by Barnevernet agents (Norway’s CPS) and police. The boy was taken from his loving parents, Leif and Terese Kristiansen. simply because they chose to home school him in order to protect him from bullying at school.

Leif and Terese Kristiansen felt they had no choice but to remove their son from school after he had received death threats, and the school was unable to protect him. The parents were looking for another school at the time he was taken from their care by Barnevernet.

Leif and Terese have been allowed only one weekly supervised two-hour visit with their son. They are being supported by the Home School Legal Defense Association in their efforts to regain custody, and bring their son home.

Home School Legal Defense Association has launched a petition drive to call upon Norwegian authorities to return Kai to his family. Click here to sign it. 


February 22, 2018 – Leif and Terese Kristiansen announced on Wednesday that their son, Kai, is has returned to their home in Ås.

“We are very pleased to announce that Kai is back in his home with his family. We’re very happy to see him again,” Leif Kristiansen wrote in a Facebook post. “We couldn’t have done this without international support from others who have contributed to us getting him back home. We are forever grateful.”

About Emily Court

It takes "Just Us" To Fight Injustice in Family Court. I blog to raise awareness about problems existing in the family court system, and use my own story as a personal example of how the systemic failures in family court, and the Guardian ad Litem Program, affect families, in an effort to encourage needed reform. Written by a survivor of domestic violence and homelessness working to create a better life for her children, in a stable home free of violence. In her efforts to rebuild her life, she has not only encountered harassment and intimidation from her alleged abuser but faced systematic failures in family court that have empowered her alleged abuser and put her children at risk. She has spent over a decade trapped in family court until her children finally aged out of the system. Through writing and blogging, FCI is working to raise awareness about domestic violence, and the urgent need for family court reform. She is currently working on a memoir titled "'Til Prayers Are Answered".
