Reality star prepares for possible child custody battle

Though surely not the first celebrity to hail from Texas, Tila Tequila remains a favorite tabloid target. The reality star has often found her face splashed across headlines dishing the latest on her sometimes wild lifestyle. Tila, who is a mother, now must worry that her on-screen antics may affect child custody. Though she is no stranger to controversy, she has been accused by the father of her child of allowing her reality star persona to negatively affect their 4-year-old daughter. 

The former couple does not have a formal child custody order from the court. The child's father had considered taking action to establish an order years ago, but he decided not to pursue one, hoping that the two could continue to co-parent and agree about custody between themselves. He states that recent social media posts have concerned him enough to take action, claiming the child is being neglected or mistreated by Tila. 

He wants the court to allow Tila to only have supervised visit with the child. Tila, who maintains residence in Texas, says that his claims are unfounded, and she thinks that her home us a good environment for their daughter. Tila lives with her husband, a younger child and her parents. 

If a parent fears child custody troubles may wind up in court, he or she may want to consider partnering with an attorney. An attorney may be able to help a parent establish a custody order enforceable by law. Parents should know that just because they have been accused of making poor choices for their children, they will be given the opportunity to prove otherwise to a judge.
