Child custody dispute still not resolved for Nicole Curtis

Michigan fans of the hit TV show "Rehab Addict" are likely familiar with Nicole Curtis, the main star of the show. Some may also be aware that Curtis has been engaged in a child custody battle with the child's father, a businessman from another state. The two had a son together, who is now 2 1/2 years old.

Curtis said she kept her pregnancy a secret for a long time because she feared negative backlash due to the fact that it was her second child born out of wedlock. Her older son is currently age 19. However, at some point, her former lover learned he was the child's father and took action to claim paternity and protect his rights in court.

Visitation was granted to the father, but Curtis says that decision has done nothing but cause trauma and upheaval in her child's and her own life. She practices attachment parenting and breastfeeding and when visitation with the child's father ensued, it was the first time mother and child had ever been apart. She says that her body could not produce enough breast milk to pump ahead of time, so the court allowed her to meet with her son, once a day, during his visits with his dad so that she could breastfeed him.

The child custody situation is far from over, according to Curtis. The baby's father has since relocated to live closer to his son, and those who know the man say he is a wonderful parent. Michigan parents facing similar issues can ask a judge to intervene if a particular problem cannot be resolved out of court. An experienced family law attorney would be a great asset to have one one's side during such times.
