Pennsylvania Child Custody Battle of Father Over Son Continues

By Sheryl Rentz on September 9, 2009

For seven years, a 28-year-old father has been doing all he can to get custody of his 7-year-old son, who is currently under the Department of Human Service’s care. However, according to an account, the agency is trying to terminate the father’s parental rights and put the boy up for adoption despite his father’s actions. In April of this year, the man was awarded full custody of his 9-year-old daughter and the current challenge he is facing in getting custody of his son is proving to be highly complex.

The DHS isn’t backing down despite the fact that the 28-year old father has a clean record, a steady job, and a house in West Philadelphia. Despite his stability, the agency stated that the father has failed to attend his bi-weekly visits with his son. In stressing the importance that visitations play in fostering healthy relationships between parent and child, a DHS spokeswoman bluntly stated that “the court is basically looking at the relationship between the parent and the child and that has to start with them seeing each other.” This is information that all parents seeking custody of their children should take note of.

As this Pennsylvania child custody battle demonstrates, the demands of the court system can be elaborate and require a parent to feel as if they are walking on eggshells, afraid to make even a single mistake that may result in losing their child. During such a challenging time, parents are faced with emotions that can leave them overwhelmed, distraught, and confused, all of which may require the assistance of a professional who can offer perspective and bring to light the best legal options to choose from as to how to gain custody.
