When couples with children divorce, custody of the children is one of the major aspects they focus on during negotiations. Once a child custody agreement has been reached, both parents must abide by the agreement. If either parent ignores the agreement, that parent might be found in contempt of court. Before an agreement is reached, it is important to understand the definitions of both physical and legal custody.
Paul George's current legal dispute points out some issues which may be of concern to unmarried Virginia couples trying to resolve a child custody matter. George allegedly fathered a child with Daniela Rajic, a woman he met in Florida. A paternity test performed before the birth confirmed George as the father. However, he disputes the test's method and result. He plans to accept responsibility if another test confirms him as the father.
