Child custody fight leads to injury and assault charges for 5

Parents who are no longer together can often work out a parenting plan without excessive contempt. However, there are situations when a child custody dispute can reach an impasse that seems impossible to resolve. There are likely thousands of California families who have found themselves in need of assistance in order to move forward for the sake of their children.

Recently, one such disagreement ended in a violent incident, and five people were later arrested and charged with assault. According to the report, a 20-year-old man was arguing with the mother of his 1-year-old child. He was purportedly attempting to assert his rights to spend the day with the young child. As he was holding the child, the dispute became more heated and escalated to the point that the 23-year-old mother allegedly pulled out a sharp implement and sliced the man across his back.

Witnesses who purportedly filmed the altercation claim that three male relatives who were with the mother then also assaulted the father. It is unclear in what manner he was attacked. He may have allegedly fought back, as he was subsequently also charged with assault.

Officials reported that the father was not seriously injured and the child was unharmed in the incident. For the time being, until the situation can be sorted out, the child was released into the care of the maternal grandmother. While this particular child custody dispute erupted into a violent encounter, the vast majority of these cases do not end in assault charges. California families who find themselves unable to arrive at an agreeable arrangement for their children may choose to consult with their own family law professional in order to resolve their differences in the best manner for their children.
