NBA Star Dwayne Wade Deals with Visitation Issues During Championship Finals

By Sheryl Rentz on June 20, 2012

Following the arrest of his ex-wife, professional basketball player Dwayne Wade has asked a judge to suspend her child visitation rights with their two children, according to SportsIllustrated.com. The weekend incident that led to her arrest delayed the return of Wade’s sons to his custody and led to her arrest. The filing indicates that the two boys were supposed to be picked up by Wade’s sister on the afternoon of June 16 so they could be on a 3:05 p.m. flight from Chicago to Miami to be with Wade on Father’s Day, but after receiving no response at the home, the sheriff’s office was called to the scene after several hours. The report also states the mother tried leaving the home without the children when one of the responding deputies tried taking her into custody.

A spokesperson for the Cook County Sherriff’s Office reports that the NBA star’s ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches-Wade, has been charged with two counts of attempted child abduction, one count of resisting arrest, and two counts of unlawful visitation interference. Another woman home at the time of the incident was also arrested for resisting arrest. Read the rest »

By Sheryl Rentz on September 1, 2010

We often assume that a child is best left in the care of his or her parents. However, when one or both parents has a relatively small role in a child’s upbringing, and other relatives, such as grandparents, accept the task of raising the child, the best interests of the child need to be thoroughly taken into account, particularly when it comes to custody and visitation rights. According to Ohio’s Dayton Daily News, a family law case involving a young girl, her maternal grandparents, and her father illustrates how important it is that all details are carefully examined when it comes to providing a child with a healthy home environment.

Reportedly, after the 8-year-old’s mother passed away, her grandparents, whom the girl and her mother had already been living with, were contacted by the young girl’s father, who requested that visitation with his daughter resume. The girl’s grandparents obliged, but were soon blindsided when the girl’s father acquired a court order for his daughter to begin living with him and his new wife. After much debate, the girl’s grandparents were awarded visitation rights every other weekend. Read the rest »
