During a divorce, it is natural for the two parties two fight over their most valuable possessions, such as the car and the house. However, their children often are seen as even more valuable, so going through a child custody battle with an ex-spouse can be frustrating. The court in Massachusetts will have to make the final decision concerning child custody based on the children's best interest.
In one high-profile, out-of-state case, former football player Kordell Stewart has been fighting with Lae Tania Richardson over their 9-year-old son since 2011. The two have finally reached an agreement regarding custody of their child. Stewart at first wanted full custody, but Richardson didn't support this, claiming that the former football star spent little time with his son.
