One father in another state appealed after the department of child services there challenged a child custody placement in his favor.

Couples going through divorce often find things to argue about that can make the entire process more difficult and expensive.

There are a number of adults in Ohio fighting to be named the custodial parent of their child. Fighting for child custody is often not an easy undertaking, especially if the other parent is exceptionally opposed to the notion.

One father is not only fighting for child custody of his newborn daughter but he is also fighting a past that may threaten his case.
