People who are in the middle of a divorce dispute for the custody of their children should remember some very important dos and don’ts. Some of these custody battle dos and don’ts they might have learned from celebrity custody fights presented in the media. For instance, it is inadvisable to place the child in the middle of the dispute between parents.
If somehow breaking rule number one is inevitable, one should always remember not to leave hard evidence at hand for the other side to use. Answering machine messages and voice mail are considered such pieces of hard evidence of the inability of one spouse to distinguish between their role as a parent and as a spouse.
