Oftentimes custody battles draw out many emotions and even worries for some Colorado parents, however the situation might be a little more heightened when the custody is so disputed and you're dealing with your own custody issues at the same time. Bond star, Halle Berry was recently reported to have lost the petition she requested regarding her daughter's living situations. Berry had sought to relocate with her daughter to France, due to some serious threats she has been trying to move forward from.
Berry and her ex have been in the news before, regarding their daughter and their child custody proceedings, and the recent news of Berry's inability to move their daughter to France is making national headlines once again. The mother of the 4-year-old had been receiving threats on her life from one man and dealing with a stalker as well over the past year or so, neither of whom are in custody any longer. With both alleged stalker/dangers out and about, it is understandable why Berry would wish to get to a safer place with her daughter.
The judge that heard her case has ruled against her wishes and, for now, Berry's daughter must remain living in the United States. Parents working together to come to an agreement both can be happy with may understand how difficult the custody issue can be. However, the situation becomes increasingly complicated when the parents were never married or, in this case, when one party wishes to continue their life outside of their child's native country.
While Colorado custody issues may not be as life-threatening, they can still take quite a toll on a parent. Understanding the laws in your area regarding child custody and relocation with a child whose parents have joint custody can be helpful for any parents who are going through this difficult process, especially parents who are from or thinking about moving to another country.
