When couples divorce, it can be difficult for children to adjust to the change in family arrangements. For a California parent, being separated from his or her child or children may be far more distressing than being separated from his or her spouse. As a result, child custody issues can potentially be some of the most contentious. In some cases, a non-custodial parent may resort to extreme measures in an attempt to overturn court rulings.
It is never easy to make the decision to divorce when children are involved. Child custody and associated issues can be difficult at the best of times. What may prove more complex are the times when California residents find themselves engaged in custodial issues and parental relocation matters involving significant geographical distance between the two parties.
