When Ohio parents separate, there may be several battles when it comes to the division of assets, financial support and custodial care of the children. Child custody battles can be brutal on everyone, especially when the best interests of the children are not kept as the main focus. Keshia Knight Pulliam is fighting to maintain control of her daughter in a child custody war with her ex-husband.
Ms. Pulliam, also known to fans of The Cosby Show as the youngest daughter, Rudy Huxtable, and her ex, Ed Hartwell, were not even married a year when he filed for divorce. He maintained at the time that she was pregnant with a child that was not his. She claims he designed methods to get her to physically lose the baby while she was pregnant, and therefore she does not want him around their child. He is now seeking joint custody of the two-month-old girl.
