Child endangerment reflects badly on North Carolina father

Children are our only hopes for the future, especially if we are parents. Many mothers and fathers have felt that they are willing to give their lives for their kids, although fortunately few have ever had to prove it. This sort of dedication often comes in helpful if parents are fighting for child custody or visitation rights.

One thing that never helps is a history of child endangerment. Other responsible parties can make a case in court that custody or visitation is not in the best interests of a child. Those are the interests that courts will always prioritize because all others are able to advocate for their own.

One North Carolina man is charged with seriously endangering his four-year-old daughter's safety during an altercation with a sheriff's deputy in neighboring Tennessee. The suspect reportedly picked up the girl after the deputy pulled a taser due to his allegedly aggressive behavior.

The man was charged with child endangerment and domestic assault along with other crimes related to the incident. The daughter is safe after she was released by the man and he surrendered. However, the incident would be seen in a dim view by any court considering any history of acting against a child's best interests.

People can make a case for the best arrangements for child custody with the help of an attorney. Legal representation is often a good idea when people are working out the details of divorce and child custody. It may also be useful for members of the family looking to assert their rights to a child.
