Man allegedly threatens judge over child custody case

There are a variety of situations that may result in a parent losing custody of children. These may involve the complicated dynamics that occur between parents during a relationship breakdown or may involve allegations that children are not receiving proper care or supervision. Every day, families in California are faced with child custody situations that are not easily resolved on their own.

In 2014, a family's children were removed from the home on allegations that the children were not receiving proper care. The father disputed the claims and stated that the situation involved the decision to proceed with a home birth and with a holistic approach to heath care for the minors in the home. However, child protection workers claimed that the children suffered from neglect and possible malnourishment while also facing danger of abuse. The 26-year-old father in this case alleged that the county kidnapped the children under false pretenses.

Over the next 30 months, the case has escalated to the point that a judge recently ruled that the father is not fit to have parental rights. He responded by purportedly threatening the judge. He allegedly posted photos of himself with an object that could be a firearm on social media along with threatening statements. The man also purportedly made alarming statements during a recent court appearance.

Officials arrested the man, and he faces charges of intimidation and felony harassment against the judge. While this case is an extreme example, the emotions surrounding the issue of child custody can often cause anxiety and worries that one may not be granted equal access to one's children. A professional who is knowledgeable about California laws regarding custody and related matters may be able to provide the information and compassion needed in order to arrive at the best solutions for the children involved.
