What to know about child custody transfers

67009510_S.jpgChild custody is among the most contentious issues that parents in Illinois or elsewhere may face. Even those who are able to resolve financial or other issues on their own may need help when it comes to child custody matters. Many times, parents will create a specific schedule that outlines where, when and how a child is to be transferred from one parent to the other.

However, it is possible that disagreements or other problems come up related to a child custody schedule. It is important that parents manage these disagreements as children who see their parents fighting could experience emotional or other problems. In some cases, a parent or child could face physical harm or even death during a child exchange. Therefore, it may be necessary to involve law enforcement or other neutral parties during the transfer process.

It is never in the best interest of a child to see a verbal or physical altercation. This is true whether it is between the parents or between a parent and another party. Parents do risk losing custody or other parental rights if there are issues with violence or any other problems that could put the child at risk. Fortunately, most child exchanges occur without any issues that could place a parent or child in danger.

Those who are engaged in a child custody dispute may wish to talk with an attorney. It may be possible for a parent to pursue greater parental rights in court or compel the other parent to stick to any agreement that has already been reached. Typically, visitation rights are granted because they are in the best interest of the child, and they generally cannot be revoked or modified by one or both parents without the permission of a judge.
