NFL star embroiled in child custody dispute

California residents may have personal experience with situations in which children are shared by unmarried parents. Often called co-parenting, it can sometimes be difficult to reach an agreement detailing when and where a child will have access to each parent. In cases where the parents were never a couple, determining child custody may prove a daunting task.

This January, NFL player Josh Norman, of the Washington Redskins, learned that he had fathered a child with a woman from California. The pair was never in a serious relationship, and do not claim they had intended to form one. Norman now finds himself having to fight in court to see his infant daughter. 

Though he lives across the country for most of the year, Norman states that he is willing to make necessary travel arrangements to give the child access to himself and his extended family. He does not think that the child should miss out on the love and care of a father because the parents have chosen to live separately. He insists that he wants to have a relationship with his daughter, as is his paternal right. 

When California parents are facing a child custody dispute, they may feel overwhelmed. Until a court order is put into place, they may not be able to exercise their parental rights. It can be helpful for parents to seek the aid of an experienced attorney. An attorney may be able to help a parent explain their request to a judge, and assist in ensuring that any children involved will not be deprived of an important parental relationship due to bad blood between parents.
