Every child custody situation is unique. Whether there are four children of varying ages involved or only one child, each situation calls for a specific and unique approach. In the end, it is the child's best interests that matter most, and this means that every child custody case has to be carefully considered and structured in a way that allows for a parenting plan that best suits the child's needs.
Rhode Island residents may be interested to learn of a child custody case that is presenting its own unique details. Seth Peterson, best known for his acting roles in hit television series Providence and Burn Notice, is in the middle of divorce proceedings with his soon-to-be ex-wife. The couple decided to end their 12-year marriage after coming to the realization that their differences were irreconcilable.
Seth's wife, Kylee, is seven months pregnant. Besides the soon-to-be newborn, the couple also has a 5-year-old son and an 8-year-old daughter. Kylee is asking for full legal and physical custody -- a demand she claims Seth is okay with, as he has already agreed to give up custody rights. She claims to be open to giving Seth certain visitation rights -- visitations that will have to be under supervised conditions, as Seth has alleged to have been involved in reckless drug use in his past.
Parents attempting to come to a child custody resolution oftentimes have many concerns. Among these concerns are visitation rights -- how much time the non-custodial parent is allowed to spend with the children among them -- and other factors, such as extracurricular activities, vacation time and the safety of the children oftentimes need to be planned for. A well-structured parenting plan addresses all of these concerns in a way that takes into consideration the best interests of the children.
