It’s Christmas time and every parent wants to see their children on Christmas morning, and often when there is a divorce or child custody battle going on, the parent with the children withholds them to “get back” at the other parent. This is when we receive calls asking if we can get a judge to order child custody or child visitation over the holidays.
Like I told HollywoodLife.com in this article about Brad Pitt being able to see his kids,
“Brad Pitt can go to court to ask for an emergency order to see his children over the holiday but chances are that will not work. The question will be is it an exigent or pressing circumstance and the answer to that is, probably not. Courts don’t generally grant visitation orders in situations like this so if Angelina Jolie wants to be a difficult and keep the kids from Brad over Christmas, there is not much Brad or a judge can do to stop her,” CA divorce attorney David Pisarra shares EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife.com. “A judge COULD order it but that would be EXTREMELY unlikely,” he adds.
