Custody Access Issues

Divorce is complex and involves more than dissolution of a partnership between spouses. Coming up with an appropriate and balanced custody agreement that benefits the children is a process complicated by many issues and emotions.

These can include communication problems and any residual anger or frustration being taken out through this process. Additionally, this process can be hard on children in this situation.

Symptoms & signs of issues surrounding custody access  

Parents

  • Lack of trust
  • Breakdown in communication
  • Arguing in front of the children
  • Using the children as pawns
  • Not knowing how to deal with residual anger

Children

  • Unusual behavior
  • Becoming withdrawn or acting out
  • Slipping grades

When is it time to get help?

It’s not uncommon for there to be emotional upset in all parties involved in a divorce or separation. However, if you or your children are having psychological issues that are severe or ongoing as a result of your custodial access, then it may be time to seek support.

Custody access issues treatment methods

There is no one single treatment for dealing with the stress of custody access issues because it depends on what impact these issues have had on you. For example, if what you’re experiencing anxiety, then treatments for anxiety will be effective. If you’re depressed, then that’s the focus of treatment. Same goes for grief, anger management, etc. Together with your therapist, you will discover the best treatment method for alleviating symptoms. You can come alone to therapy, together with your ex, or as a family.
