Florida Military Veteran Faces Child Custody Struggles
On behalf of The Law Offices of Cindy D. Sackrin posted in Child Custody on Friday, September 4, 2015.
A military veteran who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan returned home to Florida to face a battle for custody of her two children. The military veteran was ultimately granted custody of her two children and was scheduled to be reunited with them shortly following that decision. While serving, the veteran's two children where left in the care of a relative who ultimately relocated the children without legal permission to do so. Following her return, the veteran faced legal challenges to regaining custody of her children who were, at that time, in foster care in another state.
Child custody situations can be complicated and can implicate an individual's most important concerns in life. Child custody decisions are commonly based on the best interests of the child which is the paramount concern for courts when child custody determinations are considered and made. While the best interests of the child is a guiding principle in child custody circumstances, each situation can be different and include important considerations to take into account.
Understanding the child custody and family law process, and how different considerations are evaluated, can help parents dealing with the concerns of child custody situations. Armed with a knowledge of the process, parents can better navigate it and approach child custody concerns, considerations and disputes which can sometimes be resolved productively and without the need for conflict. When child custody disputes and conflict arise, however, it is equally important for parents to know how to respond.
Child custody disputes can arise in a number of different ways and circumstances. Knowing how to approach child custody challenges can be of great benefit to parents in child custody situations.
