Some courts have addressed this issue. For instance, the NH Supreme Court has noted that "The obstruction by a custodial parent of visitation between a child and the noncustodial parent may, if continuous, constitute behavior so inconsistent with the best interests of the child as to raise a strong possibility that the child will be harmed." But others, including our courts here in WV are inconsistent. And by and large legislators have failed to act.
You don’t need to have any experience with family law to become a family court judge in WV. You can run if you’re a bankruptcy lawyer. The WV Family Court system is a ghastly mess.
