Child custody dispute turns violent

The end of a relationship between parents is seldom without its difficulties and disagreements. However, in spite of hard feelings at times, the majority of parents are capable of resolving child custody disputes without either party resorting to threats or violence. When California parents find themselves at odds when trying to arrange suitable custody plans, they may wish to consult with experienced family law professionals.

Recently, police responded to a call of a violent encounter between two individuals. According to the report, a custody dispute turned violent when a verbal argument between a 32-year-old woman and a 48-year-old man escalated out of control. The male stated that the woman became outraged and began threatening him and then stabbed him three times in the upper torso region.

A press release issued by the police stated that the knife wounds to the victim's chest did not appear to be life-threatening. The woman was taken into custody and charged with several offenses, including assault, terroristic threats and aggravated assault. She was unable to post bond and remained in custody. The report did not provide any details regarding the child involved in this dispute nor where he or she was located during this altercation.

Officials did not include any further details regarding the extent of the man's injuries or if he was the parent of the child they were arguing about. It is likely that this particular incident may have serious ramifications on whom will ultimately be awarded custody of this child. California parents who find that they are involved in a child custody battle that they are unable to resolve on their own may benefit from the guidance of an experienced and compassionate attorney who may be able to help the parties involved settle on an agreement that best fits the needs of the child involved.
