Child custody battles can harm children

Many Florida parents have disputes with their children's other parents regarding child custody. In some of these cases, parents allow themselves to be blinded by the emotional conflict involved. As a result, they may hold emotional beliefs about the other parent that are not factually based.

When parents go to war with one another over child custody, the battle is often harmful to their children, who tend to internalize such fights, believing that the only important thing to their parents is fighting with each other. Many studies have demonstrated that children do much better developmentally when they are in custody arrangements with shared parenting in which their parents are able to work together for their benefit.

Despite this, some parents hold unrealistically negative beliefs about the other parent's parenting. These parents mistakenly believe that they will easily be able to win sole legal and residential custody of their child. Courts decide child custody cases on what the judges believe is in the child's best interests, rather than in the best interests of either parent. A majority of judges believe that a child's interests are best served when they have liberal contact with both parents.

A parent who is fighting for custody rights may benefit by getting help from a family law attorney. Judges generally dislike when one parent attempts to withhold a child from the other. A family law attorney may work hard for their clients to secure them adequate visitation and custody rights. Legal counsel may also be able to negotiate an agreement with the other parent for a shared parenting custodial arrangement. In these situations, parents would do well to remember that their children's needs and growth are of primary importance.
