As a Jacksonville Child Custody Attorney I often see cases where one party will do everything in their power to sabotage the other party. This is the worst thing a parent can do who is involved in a child custody battle. Not only can certain actions put that parent in a bad light in front of the Judge but it can also be detrimental to the child.
Therefore, when I begin a case, whether it be a divorce case or a paternity case, among other things I tell the parent the following:
• Do not make disparaging remarks regarding the other parent in the presence of the minor child.
• Do not talk about the case in the presence of the minor child.
• Do not disrupt or interfere with the other parent’s timesharing with the minor child.
• Do not relay messages to the other parent through the minor child.
