Gosselins face child custody dispute at dental office

Addressing family issues can sometimes prove difficult. When parents are divorced and the problems relate to their child custody arrangements, it may feel even more as if neither side can find a solid solution. Unfortunately, when parents do not work well together after a divorce, some custody issues could seem to get out of hand.

New York residents may be interested in a recent custody dispute that took place between former married couple Jon and Kate Gosselin. The pair are parents to eight children, and apparently the two got into an argument after a dentist appointment for one of their daughters. One of the parents took the daughter to the appointment, and the disagreement came about when neither parent could agree as to who would take her home.

As a result of the heated argument, authorities were apparently called to the dentist's office. Though no one was arrested in the incident, police did tell the parents to speak with a judge about their custody issues. Jon and Kate do have a custody agreement, but it is unclear how it may have applied in this situation. In the end, Jon reportedly took the daughter home.

When parents cannot work together amicably, having a solid child custody agreement can often help avoid unnecessary disputes. Of course, some issues may arise after the terms have already been agreed upon. When New York parents believe that their current custody arrangements no longer suit their circumstances or one parent has not been following the terms correctly, they may wish to find out more information on potentially seeking to enforce or modify their agreements.
