How to handle child custody disputes

Many Florida parents may be familiar with the stress that can occur when an argument about custody arises. Sometimes it can be quite difficult for parents to discuss custody, and when there is a dispute, a situation can quickly escalate. Parents should be aware that when it comes to child custody disputes, it is often not a good idea to try to handle it alone. 

Biological father charged for violating child custody order

Florida parents may understand the heartache that can come when parents who do not share a household argue over custody. Sometimes, it can be difficult for a parent to obey a child custody order that limits or prohibits the individual from spending time with his or her children. Parents should be aware, however, that when it comes to matters of child custody, it is against the law to take matters into one's own hands, and if such an order is found to have been violated, a parent can face serious criminal charges. 

Babysitter involved in deaths had personal child custody issue

When Florida parents are looking for a babysitter to care for their children in their absence, they may seek a fellow parent who is used to caring for kids. Parents may feel as if someone who is currently raising his or her own brood is more understanding and informed of common situations that can arise when caring for little ones. Unfortunately, one cannot assume that a sitter with children is a good choice on that fact alone. Recently, after two children died on her watch, it was revealed that one woman was in a child custody battle of her own. 

Violation of child custody orders can lead to serious charges

Florida parents would likely agree that when it comes to their children, they would do anything in their power to ensure that their children are allowed to lead happy, healthy lives. Often times, when two parents maintain separate households but have mutual children, the court will put a child custody order into place. A custody order explains the role of each parent where any mutual children are concerned. Sometimes, parents will share custody, while in other situations, a judge may decide that it is best for the children to remain in the sole custody of one parent.
