"CHILD CUSTODY" BATTLES
CHILD CUSTODY: GIVE YOUR CHILD THE GIFT OF A PARENT! In relationships and in marriages, children are often born. Babies are conceived out of love (or lust) and sadly, divorce and separation are also a reality.
When parents go their different ways, children are often put in the middle of their parents' raws. As a result, some nasty parents would bar their ex from seeing, visiting or contacting the child, mostly out of sour grapes. It does not have to be that way.
Your ex is not an ex-parent
Parents don't divorce their kids - at least not legally. So if you and your spouse are divorcing, you have to acknowledge that your soon to be ex-husband/ex-wife, is still a dad/mom to your child.
Every child needs both parents to be a part of their lives. Playing power battles with your child as a pawn will only damage him/her and result in them being resentful and angry at when they grow up.
How to divorce graciously
"Joint child custody: divorce graciously and Avoid custody battles"
When you get married, and have children, you need to be mature enough to understand the roles of both parents in a child's upbringing/life. You need to counsel yourself even before divorce could hit you, to separate your anger/pain of loss from the child's rights and well-being.
Do it for your child/ren. Unless of course your ex is a child molester or something like that, in which case the courts would not have granted them joint custody in the first place.
If the court has ordered joint custody and one party fails to abide by the order, they may/will be held in contempt of the court.
Seek an attorney'service to lodge an appeal against a broken custody agreement.
