Child Custody Arrangements May Affect Parenting In Kentucky
On behalf of of Schaffner Family Law, posted in child custody on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.
Because cell phone apps and games are more common than ever, too much time spent staring at the screen may be such an issue. If a parent feels that the situation is worth addressing and the other parent does not see it as a big deal, further conflict may arise. Of course, parents may be able to discuss the disagreement calmly and come to terms on their own.
If a discussion does not turn out the desired effect, legal action could be a step to consider. However, it is important to remember that having a solid case for taking such action will likely prove useful. If a party goes to court with a simple complaint, there may not be much headway. If a strong case is made for why the change is necessary, such as a child suffering mentally or physically, there may be a better chance for the desired outcome.
Co-parenting can be a beneficial child custody arrangement for the children involved, but if parents do not work together, everyone could face stressful affairs at some point. If Kentucky residents feel that their children are being negatively affected due to the actions of the other co-parents, they may wish to consider their options. Discussing their concerns with experienced attorneys may help them determine their best course of action.
