As Rhode Island residents know, the emotional and legal issues associated with a child-related legal dispute can be frustrating. As a parent, you want to be involved in your child's life without any complications or obstacles. Also, the result of a child custody case will affect not only your life, but the future of your children. Courts generally look to the best interests of a child when formulating a decision.
These disputes arise if the parents have conflicting plans for their kids. For example, one well-known basketball player has been battling child custody issues recently. Chris Bosh, NBA player for the Miami Heat, is currently fighting for his young daughter. According a source, the case has been filed in a Maryland court.
The NBA player claims that contrary to a custody agreement, the mother of his child has ignored his wishes to see his daughter. Recently, Bosh filed documents with a court to have the mother of his child held in contempt. A court date was set for July 12, but Bosh requested to have that date changed because it conflicts with his basketball training for the Olympics. So far, no rulings have been made on the request.
This story demonstrates how child-related legal disputes can affect anyone. The ruling of this case will ultimately determine the NBA player's potential relationship with his daughter. For this reason, if you are battling a child custody dispute, you may want to look into your legal possibilities. The result of the hearing may determine the fate of your child's future.
