Child Endangerment in Custody Disputes
Torrance Child Custody Lawyer Discusses Allegations of Endangerment
Child endangerment is a serious issue and one that is punishable by law.
Unfortunately, many instances of child endangerment go unreported because
a family member may be concerned with ‘rocking the boat.’
Despite your hesitancy, if you fear that your former spouse is putting
your child in danger, it is imperative that you speak up.
Child endangerment can manifest itself in any of the following ways:
- Causing a child to suffer unjustifiable physical pain or mental suffering
- Willfully causing a child to be injured
- Willfully placing a child in a dangerous situation
These issues are especially serious when they occur in a child custody
arrangement. To ensure that your child does not suffer harm, turn to our
firm. As a mother-daughter legal team, we compassionately and accurately
address child custody issues that Torrance & South Bay residents are

How does child endangerment affect custody orders?
Concerns that are based on physical evidence or proof gain ground much
quicker in court. The more certain you are that your ex-spouse is actually
endangering your child, the better. False allegations can place you directly
in the middle of a lawsuit.
If the court determines that child endangerment is indeed an issue, there
is a good chance that the accused parent will lose some or all of their
custody rights. Your child’s best interests are the court’s
priority and they are very intentional about preserving these interests.
