Ongoing custody battle between Nicole Curtis, child's father

Missouri fans of the HGTV show "Rehab Addict" may have followed the custody battle of its star, Nicole Curtis, with her ex-boyfriend Shane Maguire. The two have a 1-year-old child together, Harper, and their court battle began with a paternity complaint from Maguire after Harper's birth. Curtis had sole custody at the time. She asked for birthing expenses, child care costs and child support.

Although Maguire said he earned $3,744 per week, Curtis countered that his income was actually $20,000 weekly. Maguire was required to pay support and some of the birth expenses. After Christmas, Maguire was also granted visitation on weekends. Curtis filed to keep the case sealed, alleging her celebrity status and problems with a stalker, but Maguire said she did not have any stalkers. Curtis also claimed that Maguire did not use a car seat for Harper and took him out in cold weather dressed improperly.

When Curtis requested a move to California, it was granted, but the court also said she had to pay Maguire's air fare for visitation. Maguire was supposed to have weekend visitations, and the two were supposed to split time on holidays. Maguire then claimed Curtis denied him access to the child.

Some studies have shown that a high-conflict divorce makes the process more difficult on children. Parents may want to try to come to an agreement about custody and support and make a parenting agreement with the help of their respective attorneys. Parents who is concerned about the possibility of abuse, neglect or abduction might also want to discuss this with their attorney, but in the absence of extenuating circumstances like these, most experts believe that liberal contact with both parents is in the best interests of the child.
