Man claims his custodial rights were infringed upon

If you have gone through a divorce and the child custody agreement between you and your former spouse has been finalized, you may think that your child custody issues are a thing of the past. Unfortunately, this is not necessarily true, as custody orders can change depending on the circumstances. Additionally, there are other parties who may seek involvement in the custody arrangement, which could further complicate matters.

Recently in Missouri, police were informed of a possible custody interference by a man who claims that his 5- year-old daughter had been taken away by a couple who were reportedly the child's grandparents. The man told a deputy that the couple forcibly removed the girl from his arms, but when the deputy contacted the couple, authorities claimed that the man would have to prove that he was the girl's father. The investigation is now ongoing, as child support paperwork was deemed not enough proof.

This specific instance may have occurred in Missouri, but Texas residents could face similar problems, as child custody is an important issue for many different parties. Grandparents and parents alike often make attempts to gain greater custody or visitation rights, and the law is very particular about how these cases turn out. In this instance for example, child support paperwork was not enough to prove parenthood.

If you are experiencing legal issues of any kind with child custody, whether you believe you deserve more time with your child than you are getting, or someone else is trying to claim that they deserve more time, it is highly recommended that you speak with an attorney. A family law attorney can help you with your child custody case, which could be the assistance you need to get the custody agreement that you deserve.
