While ending a marriage may not commonly feel like a walk in the park, the situation can become even more difficult to approach when an ex-spouse is particularly contentious. Selfish individuals or parties with violent tendencies can often cause serious issues during and after the divorce process. As a result, many New York residents may find themselves wondering how to deal with unnecessary complications, especially when it comes to child custody.
Though many divorced couples would much rather not have to see each other, individuals with children cannot often achieve such a goal. Unfortunately, one parent may try to cause issues by having an unwillingness to compromise even slightly when it comes to custody arrangements. Though children may enjoy an unexpected visit, one parent may deny the visit due to his or her own resentment toward the other parent.
Some individuals may even go to more extremes when it comes to making custody more difficult for their ex. One example of such behavior is of a man who attempted to plant drugs in hopes of making his ex look bad in order to gain full custody of the kids. This type of behavior is obviously not healthy for anyone involved.
Child custody issues can be particularly difficult after divorce, and when one parent attempts to make the arrangements even more challenging, it can seem like an uphill battle. In such cases, New York parents may want to determine what actions they could take in hopes of lessening the strain on themselves and their children. In certain instances, custody modifications may be warranted, and interested individuals may wish to discuss this option with their legal counsel.
