Dealing with custody or visitation interference

Raising a child is difficult enough on its own, but if you and your spouse decide to file for divorce, the task of raising your child becomes much more difficult. Depending on the custody arrangement, you or your spouse may have sole legal custody or physical custody -- or both. But in many cases, the two splitting spouses will share custody in a joint custody arrangement. In these cases, there is a lot of post-divorce communication and scheduling that needs to be done to ensure that your child is properly taken care of and it make sure that you and your spouse are receiving the appropriate input and time with your child.

Interference with the arrangement and other disagreements are likely to creep up over time after you and your spouse divorce and agree to a custody arrangement. So how should deal with these issues appropriately?

In almost every case of interference or disagreement, the answer is "follow the court ordered arrangement." If you act out on your own or take a defiant stance that violates the agreement that you and your spouse have, then you put yourself at legal risk and a judge could award sole custody to your ex-husband or ex-wife.

So, should you run into problems with your ex in terms of their input into decisions, their lack of involvement with scheduling, or any other issues that you may be having with them, remember: try to work it out together. Be calm and communicate effectively with them. If that doesn't work, talk with a mediator. And if the situation still isn't working out, then consider legal action with the help of an attorney.
