Matters involving child custody in Bloomington can easily become contentious. Parents cannot be faulted for loving their children, yet at the same time, their motives for not wanting their children’s other parents to have regular access to them can often come under question. One might reasonably wonder if they have their children’s best interests in mind, or are rather allowing their own personal feelings to drive their decisions. It is understandable that parents feel a great deal of emotion (both good and bad) when it comes to custody matters, but the hope is that such emotion will remain under control and not lead to potentially dangerous actions.
When it does, its repercussions can often go far beyond the parties directly involved in the custody dispute. Take the case of three sisters from Oklahoma. the trio was recently arrested and charged with attempting to kill the father of one of their numbers children. The woman allegedly hatched a plot to lure the man and his wife to a gas station in a rural community in Alabama. He believed that he was going there to pick up the child for an extended visit. Upon arriving, however, several gunshots were fired at his vehicle (one of which struck him in the shoulder). Authorities believe the child’s mother was not at the scene when the shooting occurred; her job was to get him there. Her two sisters then allegedly shot at the man and fled. All three face charges that could send them to prison for several years.
No one wants to see such an outcome in a custody case. Parents are thus encouraged to work together to come up with an amicable custody agreement. An experienced family law attorney may help make such an outcome possible.
