Nothing elicits more emotion from parents than a custody battle. When faced with the prospect of losing custody or visitation time with a child, parents can react with heated and rash decisions. Unfortunately, one woman from Kalamazoo, Michigan recently let her emotions get the best of her.

Judge under fire for child custody decision

Disputes over child custody can be quite emotional and difficult for all parties involved. Parents may feel like they have everything to lose when it comes to custody of their children.

But the situation can be complicated even further when one parent is deployed on military duty and is unable to make scheduled court appearances.

When parents get a divorce, the focus may inevitably turn to who gets custody of their children.

In this day and age, the reality simply is that some Michigan parents may not always stay together to raise their children. Parents get divorced, break up, or simply decide to go their separate ways.

Child custody is an issue that must be decided, often in conjunction with an award of child support.

Grandparents fight for visitation rights

Child custody disputes, for the most part, involve two parents and cover issues like primary custody, visitation rights and child support. But these custody battles often have greater implications. As family dynamics change, child custody not only impacts the immediate family but also the extended family.

Fathers seek to change their role in custody cases

Fathers in Michigan may sometimes feel like the family court system is stacked against them. Although many people say the court bias against dads is nothing but a myth, the numbers may be hard to ignore. As reported by the U.S. Census Bureau, roughly 24 percent of children live with their single mom, while only about 4 percent are living with their father.

Parents complicate child custody battle over fast food argument

There is a good reason that family courts maintain focus on the best interests of the child when the court is deciding a custody dispute or child support issue.

Parents can get emotional and upset toward and ex-spouse and that anger can be released in a way that hurts the children involved.
