When interfaith parents divorce, religion of the children can often become a contested issue, even if during the marriage they had agreed on how to raise the children.

The issue can be further complicated when one parent converted to the religion of the other spouse before or during the marriage, but then wants to revert back to a previous religion after the marriage—and convert the children as well.
