If there is a well-established relationship between the grandparent and grandchildren, this will be taken into consideration when a judge is asked to make a ruling on the issue of noncustodial visitation in regards to grandparents.
Opposers contend that when a court of law is permitted to order noncustodial visitation with regard to grandparents, the state is interfering with the parents' rights to make decisions concerning the raising of their children.
The removal of the noncustodial parent or increased work hours for the custodial parent can cause separation anxiety, while the parents' emotional distress tends to be felt by babies, upsetting their own emotional balance.
Collection of Support Payments: Most of the time, child support payments are made through employer deductions when the amount of child support ordered is withheld from the noncustodial parent's pay check.
These stresses include the unclear role and authority of the stepparent, financial responsibility for stepchildren, conflict between custodial and noncustodial parents, and emotional tensions.
Location of the Noncustodial Parent: If the custodial parent doesn't know where the custodial parent is living or working, the CSE office has resources available to help find that individual.
Their greater awareness of the divorce situation, however, may lead to elaborate and frightening fantasies of abandonment or of being replaced in the affections of the noncustodial parent.
Unpaid child support may be reported to credit bureaus and affect the noncustodial parent's credit rating and ability to qualify for a mortgage or other type of loan.
Children may grieve the loss of the "traditional" family, and they mourn the loss of the noncustodial parent, typically but not always, the father.
In addition, children may feel torn between the custodial parent, with whom they live, and the noncustodial parent, with whom they visit.
