NBA player awarded joint child custody of his son

Basketball fans in Pennsylvania may be familiar with Los Angeles Clippers' player DeAndre Jordan. The 28-year-old center has been involved in a child custody battle with his ex, Ashley Rose. The former couple has a 1-year-old son together, and Rose was reportedly asking the court to award her sole legal and physical custody of the boy.

Jordan fought Rose's attempt to take child custody rights away from him. However, on Dec. 9, a court in Ventura County awarded Jordan joint child custody rights and the overnight visits that he was seeking. There are reports that Jordan will be allowed to have two overnight visits with his son each month.

The judge who issued the ruling in the case also stipulated that both parents must refrain from consuming alcohol or drugs for at least eight hours before they are scheduled to have parenting time. Another court hearing in the couple's case is scheduled to take place in March. It is unclear what child support arrangement the former couple has worked out.

A father who is fighting to retain child custody rights may want to have representation from a family law attorney. If the father has not yet established paternity, an attorney may help the father to show evidence of paternity so that he can assert his parental rights. An attorney may also help the father to prove that joint custody is in the child's best interest and that disrupting the relationship would have a negative impact on the child's well-being.
