Tyrese Gibson awarded joint custody of his daughter

Tennessee residents who enjoy following celebrity news may be interested to learn that Tyrese Gibson was granted joint custody of his daughter on Nov. 17. The Fast and the Furious series actor had been fighting to see his daughter since his ex-wife claimed that he had physically abused the child.

Unmarried parents and child custody

If a child is born to an unmarried couple in Tennessee, the father is not assumed to be a legal parent. Therefore, the father generally needs to sign an affidavit claiming responsibility for the child. Doing so gives both the mother and father the same legal rights and responsibilities to the child. The parents then have the freedom to give the child whatever name that they deem to be appropriate.

Fathers, custody and coparenting

Parents in Tennessee who are getting a divorce may need to make decisions about child custody. There is a stereotype that divorced fathers are not involved in their children's lives, but it is not accurate. Many fathers who are divorced want to spend time with their children, and during the divorce process, they can take steps to ensure that this is the case. There are a number of options fathers can pursue, including sole custody, shared custody and visitation. The final plan needs to work with parents' schedules while being what's best for the children.
