Custody Exchange Problems and Children Screaming

Child Screams and Hides at Custody Exchange

Quite often our clients begin their custody modification case through our firm saying that their child acts terrible when the child goes to their visitation exchange. Some children scream hysterically and cry as if to be tormented. It can be a horrifying experience for one parent to see. The question is why does this happen. It can be one of two reasons.

The first being, the break up may have directly affected the child. Did the child understand what was happening during the divorce? Was the child able to comprehend one of the parents seeing the other as the bad guy? If so, the child has probably been brainwashed or is feeling that one parent was bad to the other, thus bothering the child.

The second reason could be a legitimate abusive situation happening while in custody of one of the parents, often seen when the parent brings in another party such as a boyfriend who is abusive to the child, or another child lives with them from a different family. The later two are the most common reasons for the child's erratic behaviour at exchange times.

If there is any evidence of abuse, you should contact our skilled divorce attorneys immediately. It may be prudent to go back to court with our skilled 26 year plus family law attorney, for a modification of custody promptly.
