Teresa and Joe Giudice: An interesting child custody issue

Once a parent, always a parent is a saying that holds true for many parents who are going through a legal battle. In the case of a parent who is looking at time in prison, determining who is going to care for the children is something that has to be considered. When both of a child's parents are facing time in prison, the difficulty increases.

For some parents who are heading to jail, taking care of their children through a guardianship or other formal child custody arrangement is what happens. For one couple living in New Jersey, that isn't going to be necessary because the judge in the case had mercy on the children in a criminal justice trial.

Joe and Teresa Giudice were both recently sentenced to prison for fraud. The judge presiding over the case has ordered Teresa to start serving a 15-month prison sentence starting in January. Joe's 41-month prison sentence will start when his wife gets out of prison. By doing this, the judge has ensured that the children will have a parent at home. It also gives the children a last Christmas with both parents before the parents are incarcerated.

Any parent who Is facing criminal charges should take the time to think about child custody if they will have to spend time in jail or prison. Child custody cases aren't always associated with parents who are getting divorce. These family law proceedings can also be used to help ensure children are cared for in the proper way through a variety of situations, including when a parent is incarcerated.
