Abuse allegations in child custody case against Teen Mom 2 star

Ohio fans of reality show "Teen Mom" are eagerly awaiting the premiere of the show's second season. Many fans have also been following a child custody situation involving one of the show's stars, Jenelle Evans. Evans's ex boyfriend is suing for custody of their son and has levied some serious accusations against Evans and her current husband.

The father of Evans's son told the court he witnessed bruises on his child. The father, Nathan Griffith, says he spotted the injuries during a weekend visit he was enjoying with his son. Evans claims that Griffith and his mother refused to return her child to her at the appointed time when the visit was over.

Evans also says she and her husband believe there were much better ways to handle the situation, such as simply inquiring about the bruises and asking what, if anything, they knew about the situation. Evans's current spouse said the child likely got hurt playing on a slip-and-slide toy at his school. Griffith, however, apparently reported the bruises to Child Protective Services in numerous counties.

Child custody situations that involve abuse allegations can be difficult to resolve. The court always has children's best interests in mind but also understands that some parents make false accusations to try to gain the upper hand in a custody battle. The court will typically order further investigation before making a final decision as to whether or not a parent is unfit. An experienced Ohio family law attorney can provide support to a parent on either side of this issue.
