Issues of Domestic Abuse

If there are allegations of domestic abuse involved in your divorce or child custody case, the court is able to issue an order of protection. A protection order is meant to protect victims from their alleged abuser. If domestic abuse against you, your child, or both of you has been perpetrated by your spouse, we will work with you to secure a protection order. We will also help you with visitation. In these types of cases, the court may deny visitation completely or severely limit it.

The Best Interests of the Child

The best interests of the child standard is used by courts to determine what orders they should issue in cases involving children. Typically, the court will work with a social worker who is assigned to the case. The job of the social worker is to give the court an unbiased third-party view of what is in the child’s best interests. The court and the social worker will try to identify the most appropriate parenting time, living situation, child support, and other important issues that affect your children.

Relocation of Children / Ex-Spouse

After a divorce involving children, one parent may want to relocate. If you or your children’s other parent relocate, you might see less of your children. If you and your children’s other parent share parenting time and decision-making, you might not be allowed to relocate with your children. Relocation cases can be challenging. Make certain to understand your rights before you move so that you will continue to be able to see your children.

Parental Kidnapping

When one parent takes a child without the other parent’s consent, it is called parental kidnapping. This sometimes occurs when a parent is denied visitation or custody of a child. Federal and state laws have been created to punish parents who engage in parental kidnapping. These can be serious criminal charges and require legal support. The attorneys at the Cantor Law Group can assist you throughout these types of cases

If your child or children have been taken without your consent, speak to the authorities immediately and then contact our firm!

Parental Alienation

In some child custody and divorce cases, a child will state that he or she no longer wants to see one of his or her parents. A child who is sufficiently old and mature enough is allowed to give his or her opinion, and it may affect the outcome of a custody hearing. However, a child who wants to stop seeing a parent may have been influenced by the other parent through parental alienation. This may happen because of the negative influence of the child’s other parent or because of separation from the parent from whom the child is alienated.
