Custody Battle (General Discussion)

i am just not getting it. Ok, so Bill has let Will down and hasn't been around a lot. I get being angry and concerned about your son. I just don't get what taking custody from Bill will help anything. Even if they do not share custody of Will anymore, there would be set visitation. It would not be at Katie's discretion. Courts don't do that because that would be pitting parents against each other.

This whole s/l does not make sense. It is stupid with everyone like Thorne and next Ridge being involved.

Ridge trying to say who and who isn't a good father? That is a big joke.

It is stupid...I guess Katie wants to have the say so on every decision there is to be made about will and not Bill...I don't think she is gonna win...

Bill is the father. This is Thorne’s way of replacing Alley with Will. He blew it with Alley and now he wants a do over with Will. And Katie just goes along with it .

Yes Ridge is such a great example of what a good Father is. :roll He's such a good father that he passed his grandson off as his son and lied about it. :oops

Ridge isn't the father of the year, but he is certainly a better father than Bill, for a ton of reasons.

I think stealing your son's child and lying about who the father really was is as low as Bill has ever gotten.

Could you list some of those reasons, please? Because what I see in Ridge is a father who stole his own son's child and claimed it for his own, a father who used RJ unashamedly to get Brooke and then promptly forgot about him, a father who could not be their for his children when their grandmother passed (both Steffy and Tom were very close to Stephanie), a father who refuses to listen to his daughter, and a "father"/half-brother who played tonsil hockey with his half-sister who was the young woman he raised as his own daughter for much of his life. Bill has anger management issues and I could see a family court judge recommending counseling for him so Will doesn't witness that. I guess sexing up his son's wife may come close to Ridge putting his tongue in Bridget's mouth, but at least Bill hadn't raised Steffy as his daughter.

Courts are loathe to strip custody from a parent. There has to be documented proof of abuse, physical neglect, or parental substance abuse which makes them a danger to the child. A case like this would never see a courtroom because the judges are far too busy with cases of child endangerment. I've laughed at Carter talking about the "documented" times when Bill didn't show for a visit. And Katie telling Brooke she has no other choice? What??

The whole storyline is ridiculous. However, I guess Bell couldn't come up with anything better for Katie and Thorne to do.

It doesn’t line up with real world and as always we should forget what we saw in the past.
