Child custody info may help avoid hasty actions in California

Only being able to spend limited time with their children can have considerable effects on parents. They may feel that their child custody terms are unfair or that changes should be made to allow them more time. Unfortunately, some individuals' distress over their situation may cause them to act rashly and make their situations more complicated. 

California residents may be interested in one situation relating to the custody of a 4-year-old girl. Reports stated that an AMBER Alert was issued after the girl was taken from a bus stop. Luckily, the child was found the next morning and did not suffer any harm. Authorities suspected that the individual who took the child was the young girl's mother, and the child was indeed located with her mother.

The mother took the child the same day she lost total custody of the young girl. It was unclear what may have caused this ruling to come from the family court. The report stated that, before this ruling, the mother only had visitation rights, and the child's aunt had previously been awarded custody. 

When child custody decisions do not go a certain way, it is understandable for feelings of upset to come about. However, individuals may wish to consider their legal options for appealing decisions or working for custody modifications before taking drastic measures. California residents who are concerned with their custody agreements may wish to speak with experienced family law attorneys who could provide information on modification options and other helpful custody topics.
