Child custody and legal guardianship are essential terms that describe the legal and practical relationship between a parent and their child, encompassing the child’s right to make decisions and the parent’s duty to provide care. In the realm of family law, issues involving residence and visitation rights often lead to intensely contentious disputes. These issues are particularly prevalent in divorce proceedings, where emotions can run high.

To mitigate these disputes, many divorcing couples opt to use trained and certified mediators. Mediation can provide a less adversarial environment, encouraging cooperative problem-solving and potentially leading to a more amicable resolution that serves the best interests of the child. However, when mediation is unsuccessful or bypassed, litigation becomes the avenue for resolution. In such cases, child custody battles can become protracted and costly, often exceeding the financial resources of the parties involved.

Unfortunately, these custody disputes can sometimes be fueled by vindictiveness, with one parent using the legal battle as a tool to exert control over their former partner. This manipulation not only exacerbates the conflict between parents but can also have detrimental effects on the child’s well-being. The guiding principle in custody cases is the child’s best interests, which include considerations of the child’s safety, emotional and physical health, and overall happiness.
