International child custody battle nets state, federal charges

As many in California are aware, child custody issues can be contentious in a divorce and after. In most cases, both parents want what they believe to be in the best interest of their children. However, in some child custody matters, the parties just don't seem to be able to agree on what is best for the children and sometimes one or both act solely out of self-interest.

California budget cuts threaten child custody court hearings

On April 16, the chief justice of the California Supreme Court cautioned that the state's budget cuts are putting pressure on its court system. She warned that yet another round of potential budget cuts threatens to result in the closure of more courtrooms. If true, this may inhibit the ability of the state's residents to rely on the judicial system to preside over child custody proceedings and other family law matters.

Proposed child custody law favors fathers' rights

California readers may be interested in a fathers' rights debate that is going on in one state where legislation is pending that proposes reforms more favorable to dads. There, when a child is born out of wedlock, a father may soon find that his rights to child custody has increased. This would occur if a new law being proposed is actually enacted into law.

Man fights for custody of his children after deportation

The primary caregiver of a child is most often the one to whom child custody is awarded in divorce and separation matters. California residents who have gone through a divorce know that the custody decision can be one of the most difficult in a case. However, as one recent story shows, child custody matters can arise outside of divorce as well.

Should child custody and visitation laws be more stringent?

A terrible tragedy occurred this week that some California residents may have heard about. A man burned down his home while he and his two children were inside, and all three were killed. The father carried out this tragic act during his visitation time with his children. While this situation is of course very rare, it has prompted some to question the current laws surrounding child custody in this country.

California parent without legal custody may have kidnapped child

Officials in California have been alerted to the disappearance of a young girl who was taken from her school on Jan. 23. The 11-year-old girl is thought to have been kidnapped by her mother, who does not have custody of the child. The father of the girl, who has legal custody, has told police that the mother is likely returning to the Sacramento area with the child. Sacramento officials are on the lookout for the child.

Man kills child and himself in custody dispute

There is perhaps nothing as frightening as being in an abusive relationship. Though someone may want to get out, they often don't know how, fearing for their own or their children's safety. Often the situation is left to fester too long, and sometimes the results are tragic. In matters of child custody in California, the well being of the children and their right to be free from fear of injury is paramount. No one should be made to suffer in a relationship built on fear.

There is perhaps nothing as frightening as being in an abusive relationship, whether it is in California or elsewhere. Though someone may want to get out, they often don't know how and fear for their own safety as well as that of their children and others. Often the situation is left to fester too long, and sometimes the results are tragic and even horrific. In matters of child custody, surely the well being of the children and their right to be free from fear of injury is paramount. No one should be made to suffer in a relationship built on fear.

'Teen Mom' star in child custody battle

When the parents of a minor child split up and custody is at stake, it is most often the father and his counsel who play defense while the mother and her lawyer play offense. This makes sense considering custody is more often awarded to the mother. But in a developing child custody battle in California, these roles have been reversed. As the couple works to hash out a custody agreement, the father's counsel told 'Star' magazine he thinks the child will go to the father. He said he thinks the child's mother would not be awarded custody because she would find it difficult "to maintain a clean track record." The father's lawyer added he and his client want the child's mother to have a lot of visitation.
