Almost nothing is more gut wrenching than a child custody battle. At times, some parents can lose sight of the best interests of the children, and use a custody battle as leverage to gain a better financial settlement in a divorce. Sometimes a parent may try to alienate children or put them in the middle, hoping to gain revenge on the other parent in doing so.
