Chris Brown fighting for joint custody instead of visitation

Anyone who has gone through a child custody dispute with the other parent of their child knows how difficult and emotional the process can be. Despite this causing the child to suffer, parents may continue to battle until one is awarded custody, and the other parent is left with only visitation. Both parents wanting full custody or not being able to agree on an arrangement that will benefit the child can create a lot of stress for all parties involved. At the end of the day, the goal is to allow the child to maintain a quality relationship with both parents, but this isn't always taken into consideration when two parents are in the midst of a dispute.

Singer, Chris Brown is battling with the mother of his child for custody. His daughter's mother is reportedly going for full custody and requesting that the singer only receive supervised visitation because she doesn't believe that her daughter is safe with Brown. Despite the mother only wanting Brown to be awarded supervised visitation, he is allegedly pursuing joint custody.

This is not an uncommon situation for parents to go through when one feels as though they are a better fit for the child. While parents may think it is important to win, they should keep the child's best interest in mind when making the decision to pursue full custody. Even though visitation may seem fair, they may need to look at how it may or may not benefit the child.

Child custody cases are particularly difficult because the best interest of the child has to be kept in mind, but at the same time courts may want to be fair to both parents when making a ruling on the matter. Attorneys are often helpful in these situations because they are familiar with how things work and what courts look at before making the decision. Those dealing with a child custody dispute may want to consult with an attorney, as they can assist with the case.
