Custody remains central issue in reality TV star's divorce

In January, New York readers may recall that we discussed one reality TV star's divorce. That's when Bethenny Frankel filed for divorce from her husband of three years. At the time of the filing, it appeared that child custody would be a central part of the couple's divorce. Nearly five months later, that has proven to be true.

The couple is reportedly continuing to work through property division matters. In addition, a custody arrangement needs to be settled. The couple has a 2-year-old daughter together.

Frankel said recently that she didn't expect things to get so tumultuous between her and her estranged husband.

"I really did think it would be amicable," Frankel said.

As many New Yorkers know, going through a divorce is rarely easy. There are many complex matters that must be worked through. It can be extremely emotional for parents as they are trying to sort through child custody matters.

Often, parents may make custody issues more difficult as a way of getting back at their former spouse. However, it would be in everyone's best interests to stay focused on the child at the center of the dispute.

Settling child custody disputes is often easier with the help of an experienced legal professional. An attorney who has experience handling family law matters understands that the divorce process can be an emotional one. An attorney will work with his or her client to resolve issues in a timely manner. An attorney's main focus will be creating arrangements that are best for everyone involved.
