In the last three months, I have learned of four custody cases in which polyamory is being used as a reason for taking children away from their parents. That's more than I've heard of in the last three years. So before we get into more generic stuff about raising children in a poly family, we're going to spend a couple of weeks reviewing the way polyamory can and will impact child custody cases, and what you can do to protect yourself and your children.
If you are facing a custody case, make sure you talk with a lawyer or other legal expert. The information provided in this blog is for information purposes only.
Over the next few weeks I'll be covering:
1. Who is at risk
2. How you can protect yourself and your children
Some parts of this topic will be specific to the US, others will be useful for any poly folk.
