Bethenny Frankel reopening child custody case

Having a child can often make life complicated, even though the birth of a child can also bring great joy. Greater complications may arise if the parents choose to end their marriage. Child custody disagreements can often lead to difficulties, and even after initial terms have been decided, one or both parents may feel the need to change the terms of the agreements.

New York residents may be interested in the custody issues of television personality and business woman Bethenny Frankel. Frankel and her ex-husband Jason Hoppy divorced in 2013. They reportedly have one daughter together, who is now 7 years old. Though their initial agreement resulted in the two parents having the ability to co-parent their daughter, Frankel recently reopened their custody case.

Apparently, Frankel now wants full custody of the young girl. It was unclear what caused this desire, but reports did mention that Frankel wanted primary custody and sole decision-making abilities during the initial custody proceedings. It was noted that the former couple have court appearances set after the first of the coming new year.

Many parents struggle with certain decisions concerning their children. Child custody arrangements can be difficult to come to, and, as this case shows, modifications may later be needed if issues with current arrangements arise. If New York residents are concerned with the custody of their children, they may wish to find out more information on their legal options and what avenues may be available, in the event that they would like to change those terms.
