Couple's newborn removed within 24 hours of delivery

The couple discussed in our previous blog that made headlines for naming their child Adolf Hitler are making news headlines again. Their child custody battle with the Division of Youth and Family Services in New Jersey took a new turn after the woman gave birth to a fourth child. DYFS took the child approximately 17 hours after it was born -- they had no court order demanding that they do this, according to the parents.

In 2008, the Campbell family was in the news when a grocery store refused to decorate a birthday cake for their son, Adolf Hitler Campbell. The boy and his two sisters, Honszlynn Hinler Jeanie Campbell and Joyce Lynn Aryan Nation Campbell, were removed from their parents in January 2009 and have not been in the custody of their parents since, residing in the foster care system instead.

An appeals panel decided in August 2010 that DYFS had made a correct decision in choosing to remove the children. According to their assessment, the couple was a danger to their children because of the father's allegedly history for violence. The mother had denied that her husband was violent. Based on this, she was deemed unfit to be a parent as well.

Reports show that the couple gave birth to another child, Hons Campbell, earlier this month. The woman said that her delivering doctor called DYFS after the newborn boy's birth. Officials from the organization arrived with law enforcement agents in tow. The child was taken into the custody of DYFS less than 24 hours after he was born.

Although this fight is between the state and the couple, it highlights the delicate circumstances that can affect a child custody battles. When making a decision in regards to custody during divorce proceedings, numerous issues are taken into consideration in order to decide what is in the best interest of the child or children.
