Indiana Pacers player seeks child custody

Colorado basketball fans may be interested to learn that a huge custody battle appears to be brewing for Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George. According to the latest update on June 30, George intended to determine if the child was his through an additional paternity test. In the event of a positive result, he will reportedly file for sole custody.

The petition allegedly named numerous reasons as to why shared or joint custody would be detrimental to the young child. For example, the petition claimed that the mother was not able to take care of the child as she was unemployed and refused to actively seek a job. George's claim reportedly insists that the player has the resources and the ability to be a fully committed parent. Additionally, the petition requested that if he was not granted custody, he would not be required to pay the full amount in child support as outlined by the guidelines in Florida.

An attorney for the mother disputed the claims in the petition, stating the his client was not currently seeking employment because she had a 2-month-old child. According to the report, the mother had previously filed for sole custody of the child, citing George's busy travel schedule. She is currently living in Queens with family.

When a couple who have a child decide to split, they need to determine custody rights of the child. Whether an individual is fighting for sole or joint custody, an attorney may be able to assist them during the court process. An attorney may also help negotiate child support agreements between the separated spouses.
