Connecticut parents who divorce typically understand that the process ahead is bound to be wrought with challenge. After all, severing marital ties, especially when children are involved, is a major life-change to which all parties need to adapt, which isn't always easy. If there are extenuating circumstances, as there appear to be in a recent out-of-state child custody case, things can get quite complicated in the courtroom.
This particular situation began several years ago when a 16-year-old girl entered a relationship with a 21-year-old man. The girl lived with her mother at the time, who was adamantly opposed to the relationship; in fact, the divide between the girl and her mother grew so wide, the girl wound up with no roof over her head. She and her boyfriend asked his parents if they could live with them, but the request was rejected.
