When a couple in the Clinton Township area decides to split up there are many different outcomes that can occur. When you add children to the mix, the situation can become even more complicated. Meantime, if there is an unborn child involved, especially when a surrogate is carrying that child, the situation can get really difficult to settle.
The pending divorce case between TV host Sherri Shepherd and her estranged husband, Lamar Sally continues to heat up as the couple battles over the child they are expecting together. However, this is no ordinary custody battle. According to reports, Ms. Shepherd has apparently asked a judge to grant her no legal custody, parenting rights or responsibilities for the unborn child.
According to earlier reports, Ms. Shepherd was originally going to fight for custody of the child. However, she has no biological connection to the child as it is being carried by a surrogate and was conceived with Mr. Sally's sperm but not Ms. Shepherd's egg. She reportedly does not want to pay any child support for the child and according to Ms. Shepherd that is the only reason Mr. Sally wanted to have the child in the first place.
As this case shows, there are many different kinds of situations that can come up in divorce and custody battles, as well as many different outcomes. If you are involved in a divorce or custody battle of your own then you might want to speak with an experienced family law attorney as soon as you can, in order to get the help you need.
