Call for change for custody cases involving disabled
On behalf of Law Offices of Carla J. Zolman, L.L.C. posted in Child Custody on Thursday, December 6, 2012
Parents with disabilities are more likely to lose child custody, according to a report recently issued by the National Council on Disability. And a Kansas City, Missouri, couple is evidence of that.
Because both parents are blind, authorities took their newborn daughter from them just two days after she was born. The baby girl was gone 57 days from her parents. In another case, a woman in another state had to spend 18 months in a custody battle in an attempt to regain custody of her son. She is quadriplegic.
