Shepherd wants no child custody granted for baby, claims fraud

When many divorcing Illinois couples fight over child custody, it's often because both parents want to be involved in the lives of their children.

By 2030, some estimate that approximately 800,000 divorces will occur annually in the United States for this segment of the population.
