Reality TV star seeking primary physical custody of daughter

Most New York readers are familiar with Bethenny Frankel. Frankel rose to fame on the Bravo network. Fans watched Frankel meet the man who would later become her husband and watched as she and her husband welcomed their daughter into the world.

Despite her success, Frankel and her husband have decided to part ways. She filed for divorce earlier this month. In addition to child support, Frankel reportedly is asking for primary physical custody of the couple's 2-year-old daughter.

Going through a divorce is never easy, whether you live in Broome County or elsewhere. However, child custody matters can make a divorce even more challenging.

Parents only want what is best for their children, but there may be disagreements about just what that is. Child custody matters can become emotional and heated battles between two parents.

Divorcing parents, however, should try to set aside their emotions in order to determine what is in their child's best interests. After all, at the center of a custody dispute is an innocent child. No matter how a custody dispute is settled, parents should make sure their children will be raised in a safe and healthy environment.

When people get married, they usually don't expect that they will later divorce. The same can be said for parents who bring children into the world. However, there are instances when a divorce is best for everyone involved.

Broome County parents who are seeking a divorce would be wise to work with an experienced attorney. An attorney will look out for their client's needs while working towards solutions that are fair for everyone involved and that put the needs of the child first.
