Paula Patton and Robin Thicke in embittered child custody battle

Many Ohio residents have probably noticed Robin Thicke and his ex-wife Paula Patton have been headliners in the news for several years now. After their divorce was announced in 2014, a child custody battle ensued between the two. The latest child custody skirmish has Ms. Patton once again filing court papers, accusing her ex of altering a court order that spells out visitation terms for their son.

Ms. Patton says the order was changed to make it look like she was the one violating the official terms. Because their son was in her custody at the time the Department of Child and Family Services received the altered documents, they determined she had breached the court order. Thicke threatened to have her charged with kidnapping. She also claims Thicke has tried to impede an earlier investigation by DCFS by compelling them to close the case against him.

The couple were married for nine years before they decided to end it. The custody battle between them has been particularly spiteful. Ms. Patton claims Thicke has physically mistreated their son and has problems with substance abuse and anger management.

When child custody matters are brought before the court, the court's responsibility is to decide what arrangement would be in the best interest of the child. States vary in the factors the judges consider before they make their decisions. An attorney in Ohio who is well-versed in family law can help a parent effectively prepare a case that will be presented for a final verdict.
