Cheating, custody and children: dealing with infidelity

Not everyone may choose to keep up with the Kardashians, but unless a person has completely avoided the internet they are probably aware that controversy follows the famous family wherever it goes. Recently, sister Khloe split with the father of her child over allegations that he cheated on her with a family friend, which left many questions with regard to how her relationship with her ex would proceed and how they would successfully co-parent their one-year-old daughter.

Cheating and allegations of infidelity can have a big impact on how North Carolina divorces unfold, particularly when it comes to the financial awards people exit their marriage with. As Kardashian and her ex were not married, the primary issue that they must deal with is the custody and support of their child.

As readers know, many factors can influence how courts will determine the best interests of the kids whose parents appear in their chambers. In Kardashian's case, her child's father is a professional athlete who travels extensively. Since he is not physically present for much of the year it is not unlikely that she could secure exclusive custody of their child. However, should such a decision be made the child's father may be required to pay support for the benefit of his daughter.

Infidelity can complicate the ways that family relationships develop and end. It is important that readers seek legal advice when adultery, cheating and infidelity threaten the ends of their marriages. A divorce can take a very different path when such allegations are present, and attorneys can support their clients as they protect their rights and interests as their marriages end.
