When parents get separated or are seeking a divorce, part of the process will include determining a custody arrangement, which often involves shared physical custody. When you have your children, it might be tempting to withhold access to your kids from your spouse for different reasons.
Some people may refuse to hand over a child simply out of spite or revenge. Others may try to use their children as leverage, only agreeing to allow the other parent to see the kids if they make certain concessions in the divorce case. In any situation, this tactic almost always backfires and causes more problems for you.

If you have a temporary custody order in place, withholding access to your child can violate a shared custody order. This can result in penalties from the court and, possibly, a less favorable outcome by the court when it comes time for the final custody ruling.

Some parents try to plant seeds in their child’s mind that try to turn the child against the other parent. This is often in an attempt to gain an advantage in a child custody determination, though the attempt can backfire. Courts consider whether each parent is willing to foster and encourage a relationship with the other parent when making custody determinations. Being manipulative and trying to turn your child against your spouse can result in an unfavorable custody decision for you.
