In Illinois, many parents have custody orders and visitation schedules. These orders determine when each parent will see and care for the child. Most child custody orders indicate who will be picking up the child or dropping off the child. For the most part, these exchanges occur without any problems, even if the parents are not getting along. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes, for one reason or another, a parent may not want to give the child to the other parent. When this occurs, a conflict generally arises and the custody order may need to be revisited in court.
Tyrese, an actor best known for his roles in the Fast and Furious movies, recently went to pick up his daughter for his custodial parenting time. However, the mother of the child did not allow Tyrese to take their daughter, as the child was reportedly sick. The police were called to deal with the custody dispute and Tyrese ended up leaving without his daughter. His spokesperson confirmed that a court hearing has been scheduled and Tyrese was planning on addressing the dispute at that hearing.
Tyrese now finds himself in a position that many other parents find themselves in when dealing with joint custody. When a parent has been denied court-ordered parenting time, they have a few options available to deal with the situation. One is to call the police and, hopefully, they will enforce the court order. Another option is to go to mediation to resolve their differences with the help of a neutral mediator. However, if neither option works, then the parent must go to court and attempt to have the custody order enforced as is or seek a modification of the custody order.
Many parents in Illinois have been denied their court-ordered parenting time with their child. When this occurs, the parent does have options available to him or her in order to address the custody dispute.
