Breastfeeding central focus of Nicole Curtis's child custody case
Star of the popular TV show Rehab Addict, Nicole Curtis, recently spoke about love, family, life goals and her own family matters. In this case, the latter involves an ongoing child custody battle with the father of her 3-year-old son. Curtis also has a 20-year-old son and says she hopes to one day find love like her grandparents had, although her efforts have not yet been successful. California parents facing similar issues may also worry about the impact their custody disagreements may have on their kids.
Curtis talks about her grandparents a lot, saying she has always wanted to have someone love her the way her grandfather loved her grandmother. Instead, recent months have included contentious litigation regarding custody of her child, which included the toddler son's father accusing her of using breastfeeding to keep his child from him. Curtis has fired back, saying breastfeeding is natural and she should not be legally punished for choosing to breastfeed her child.
A central focus of the former couple's custody problem reportedly has to do with Curtis's breastfeeding schedule, which the child's father says interferes with the time he gets to spend with his son. Curtis has also said, however, that she tries to remember happier times with her ex and wants her son to grow up knowing that he was born of parents who loved each other at the time. It's not uncommon for litigation to occur when parents disagree about custody or visitation issues.
When a particular issue hits a personal note, as is the case in Curtis's situation, emotions can run high on both sides. Many California parents ask experienced attorneys to represent them in court to avoid emotional outbursts and overall stress. An experienced child custody attorney can help a concerned parent negotiate a fair and agreeable outcome.
