Sometimes, remaining on decent terms with your ex-spouse can prove to be a challenge, especially if your ex-spouse is bent on making things difficult for you. However, if the two of you are co-parenting children, you have to set aside your differences and work together for the sake of your children.
Extended contact with both parents is encouraged by North Carolina family law. What the law and courts do not encourage is taking the children away from the other parent without prior permission. A court will never side with the parent who violates the terms of the child custody agreement specified in the court agreement. Even if the parent has noble reasons for doing so, in the eyes of the law he or she will always be wrong. In addition to that, if the ex-couple agrees to an amendment of the terms of the child custody agreement, this amendment should be formalized in written form before being acted on. Otherwise, the resulting action will always be a violation.
