Illinois residents who follow celebrities may be aware of the messy breakup between television personality Rob Kardashian and model Blac Chyna. On July 11, Blac Chyna took the breakup one step further when she was granted a restraining order. Even so, the model said that she intended to make co-parenting with the child’s father work.
Blac Chyna’s legal team said that Kardashian has been a good dad to 8-month-old Dream. The main problem, they say, lies with what seems to be Kardashian’s obsession with his baby mama. Not only has Chyna never had concerns with Kardashian seeing Dream, but there are also nannies around the child 24/7, meaning Kardashian is never actually alone with the baby.
Prior to this incident, the former couple had an informal parenting agreement that allowed Kardashian to have the child half of the week. One of the nannies they had hired for Dream was already assisting with picking up and dropping off the child so that Kardashian and Chyna did not have to see each other.
In some cases when a mother requests and is granted a restraining order, even temporarily, the father’s access to the child can be suddenly cut off. This prevents the father from being able to establish a relationship with the child, especially if the child is very young. However, a family law attorney can potentially provide evidence that it is in the best interest of the child for the father to be able to continue to have contact with said child. The attorney may work out an appropriate parenting plan that includes a child custody exchange plan.
