Roughly half of marriages end in divorce and, while many couples aspire to have a “good” or “low conflict’ divorce, sometimes there may be conflicts when children are involved. Parents involved in what is known as high conflict child custody disputes have ongoing disagreements and acrimony on almost every aspect of their child’s upbringing, often carried over from the marriage into the divorce. It can be a stressful situation for a parent, who not only has to deal with an ex-spouse undermining or interfering with their relationship with a child, but also the reality of navigating the legal and mental health systems to achieve an outcome in the child’s best interests, one that allows both parents to have a positive, enduring relationship with the child.
If you are embroiled in a custody dispute, it is of the upmost utmost importance to have the right professionals on your team including an experienced child custody attorney and oftentimes a mental health professional who can advocate for you or the best interests of a child. It is important to have an attorney who truly understands your situation and has experience dealing with custody disputes in court and can refer you to the best resources to ensure that you are in good hands.
Parents involved in custody disputes not only have disagreements regarding custody and visitation, which might include parental alienation where the other parent is undermining the relationship between a parent and the child, but also disputes about where the child will attend school, go to church, or what extracurricular activities they can participate in. An experienced attorney can work with a parent to ensure that their rights are secure and the best interests of the child are being served.
