Common Child Custody Issues

The Grand Prairie family law attorneys with Christman Ramsey & Foster, PC will sometimes see examples of one parent speaking badly about the other. This is known as “direct parental alienation.” Another type of behavior, “passive parental alienation,” is, as the name implies, more subtle. One parent will, over time, try to make the child doubt their relationship with the other parent.

Our family law attorneys have also seen instances of harassment. One parent will verbally threaten the other, suddenly show up where they work, leave harassing text messages or voicemails, etc. This could be considered a criminal offense, potentially punishable as a felony.

Other times, parents will, unfortunately, use a child as a tool to make you look like “the bad guy,” so to speak. One of them may promise to take the child on a particular trip, knowing full well that the child is supposed to be with the other parent during that time. While some flexibility is usually necessary for a child custody arrangement. There are times when one parent will cross the line. If this has happened to you, talk to one of our family law attorneys in Grand Prairie as soon as possible.
