If you've had a child and are separated or divorced from the other parent, you may find yourself struggling with a child custody case. In any case involving your children, it's important to do what's best for your child. News from Oct. 24 about Pauly D's challenging child custody case may have been something you've come across; he's trying to seek custody of his daughter.
New Orleans readers who watched Jersey Shore should remember Pauly D from the crew, and this reality star has now found out that he has a little girl. The DJ discovered that the baby was born to a woman he was no longer seeing, and he has yet to see the child, according to the report. It has been reported that Pauly D had once told the woman to seek an abortion before the child's birth, and the mother is allegedly trying to sell those messages to media outlets. With so many things going on behind the scenes, it's no wonder the two are arguing over the custody of the child.
It has been reported that Pauly D doesn't think that the mother is fit to raise the little girl. He's allegedly seeking custody because the mother has a child with another father and had worked at Hooters. The woman is seeking child support, according to the documents, but Pauly D is still trying to gain some custody rights over the child. How much custody he wants is unclear, but the news might suggest that he could be seeking full custody.
If you or a loved one has a child that is in the middle of a custody battle, it can be stressful to you and the child. It's best to sort out the situation quickly and with the best interests of the child in mind at all times.
