When parents divorce in St. Clair and across the nation, multiple options exist for child custody. For legal matters, such as decisions about school and medical care, the parents have two options: sole custody or joint custody. This simply determines who makes these types of decisions for the child and has nothing to do with where the child will live. In most cases, the child will live with one of the parents and receive child support from the other parent.
Parents and basketball fans in Illinois might take an interest in the following current custody battle. Court documents state that Indiana Pacer and NBA All-Star Paul George has filed for sole custody of an infant girl that he may have fathered with a woman in New York pending the results of a paternity test. A prenatal test said that he was the father with a probability of 99.9 percent, but he reportedly had concerns regarding the original test's methodology and sought a second opinion.
