State seeks to end paternity rights of sports doctor

One state has moved to end the parental rights of a sports doctor who has been accused of the sexual assault of several females. According to the report, attorneys have filed their petition against the 53-year-old after citing testimony from the FBI. It is a case in which a man could lose custody of his children despite the fact that he has never been accused of abusing them in any way. While this case is unique, paternity rights cases are heard daily in Florida courtrooms.

The man's wife of just 11 months volunteered herself and her husband, and together, they arranged for the adoption.

A representative of one state is fighting to make it mandatory for family court judges to make it a priority for parents to share their kids after a divorce. While many couples make the decision of who will get child custody before they ever reach the courtroom, the family court judge is left to make that choice when the parents cannot agree. A new bill was introduced recently that will provide new rules on how those decisions are made. Though the bill was not presented in Florida, it could have an affect on family courts all over the country.
