Father and Stepfather go to Court in Custody Dispute

A Newtown, CT family was engaged in a custody battle that went differently than most. Parents of two children got divorced in 2005, and the mother was remarried later. This October, the mother died from cancer, leaving the children with their stepfather. Issues arose between him and the children's father once the father asked for custody of the 14 and 17-year-old. This time, the children stated that they preferred to stay with their stepfather, so the father's attorney had to do more extensive research to show the judge that the father deserved to have custody. There is a constitutional right for the birth parent to have custody, and both parties came to an agreement fairly early on in the legal process. The children will be seeing their father at least once a week, and there will be other changes made to the visitation schedule later.
