Custody violations must be taken seriously

Child custody agreements have a host of terms located within them. One of the terms that is included is when each parent will be able to spend time with the child. The schedule is something that should be followed; however, there are some instances in which one parent might try to prevent the other parent from seeing the child. This is actually against the law. It is considered interfering with visitation or child custody.

As frustrating as it is when this happens, you should make sure that you react in an appropriate manner. You should make sure that you try to talk it out with your ex. If your ex is just trying to be difficult and to punish you for some reason, you might have to go to court to get the matter resolved.

You should still abide by the terms in the child custody agreement that govern you. Still attempt to pick up the child. If you have the child, still allow the other parent to have access to the child. If you are required to pay child support, continue to pay on time. By keeping up your end of the child custody agreement, you will be able to avoid having legal issues that would arise if you tried to violate the agreement as a response to your ex's violations of the agreement.

If your ex continues to violate the agreement, you might have to head to court to have the agreement modified. Learning about the options that you have to get this done can help you decide how to handle the situation.
