Child custody battle ends in Paul Anka's favor in court

Utah parents may relate to a recent situation that concluded with the court handing down a decision with which several people are very unhappy. Singer/songwriter, Paul Anka, was a central figure in the child custody battle as he sought and won sole custody of his 11-year-old son. The child's mother is a former Miss Sweden who has reportedly not seen her son in two years.

The boy's mother is said to be highly upset in light of the fact that the court ruled she will have absolutely no contact with her son, and his father will have sole custody. The woman apparently had a bit of an altercation with Anka's current wife at the courthouse. Anka's wife allegedly rendered  a snide remark regarding the child. Anka, age 75, is said to be thrilled with his recent courtroom victory.

Most courts in Utah and throughout the nation believe children fare best when they spend quality time with both parents after divorce. Only when contact with a parent may be a detriment to a child does the court completely bar communication between the two. No details regarding what may have prompted the court's decision in this particular situation were provided.

Child custody challenges are seldom easy to overcome. Utah parents may wish to secure experienced guidance before heading to court regarding these or other child-related matters in divorce. Having a trusted attorney by one's side can help alleviate stress and often increases one's chances of obtaining the most favorable outcome possible in a given situation.
