Kardashian breakup raises child custody questions

North Carolina celebrity watchers may already be aware of the breakup between Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, who had three children together. There has been speculation regarding the likelihood of a custody battle between the two, as well as regarding the potential impact of Disick’s rumored substance abuse on the outcome of any such case.

Family law courts will consider evidence of substance abuse in determining parenting arrangements, but a history of substance abuse is not necessarily a bar even to physical custody. Indeed, most courts presume that spending time with both parents is in the best interests of the child, and they prefer arrangements that may maintain or strengthen parent-child relationships.
