Tony Raines dealing with extenuating child custody circumstances

Celebrities have personal lives just like people in Tennessee and everywhere else in the nation. Often the characters they portray in movies or on stage are quite different from their real life persona. Even celebrities who star in reality TV shows still have off-screen lives that may, at times, be wrought with problems, such as child custody issues.

Tony Raines, one of the stars on Real World: Skeletons understands all too well what it is like to have one's personal problems aired in public. Raines is not married to either mother of his two daughters, but his custody battle with his former girlfriend and mother of his 2-year-old child has likely got him feeling like there is no such thing as privacy anymore. Raines is currently fighting for custody of the child against her maternal grandparents.

Many parents are currently fighting similar battles and can relate to Raines' situation, which involves a mother who has admittedly been struggling with heroin addiction. The 27-year-old is definitely not alone in her struggle, as many parents are battling similar addictions, which often have significant impact on child custody situations. Raines said he wants what is best or his child and is trying to take his current problems day by day.

In contentious situations where Tennessee parents disagree about child custody, the court makes the decisions. Once a ruling is handed down, all parties are obligated to adhere to the court order. If a parent believes a ruling is unfair, he or she may file an appeal.
