(Scroll down for video) A baby was found at the side of a road after her parent’s divorced.

The couple of Taiwan, was arrested after being accused of child neglect.

The couple was accused of leaving their three-month-old daughter at the side of the road in front of a court house.

They were going through a divorce, while the woman was pregnant. After the baby was born neither parent was willing to raise her.

Family members of both parties refused to take the child.

The couple took the matter to court, but a custody dispute erupted and the couple could not come to a resolution on the matter.

While leaving the court, the child’s fed-up grandmother left her on the road in front of the courthouse. Officers tried to arrest the family members, but the parents and grandparents drove off in different cars.

The baby has since been placed in foster care and her parents now face charges of child neglect and child abandonment.
