LITTLE STRANGERS IN A STRANGE LAND

Charlie Sheen’s boys with ex-wife Brooke Mueller are living with ex-wife Denise Richards, according to the May 27, 2013 edition of US Weekly magazine. Mueller was in “her 20th round of rehab”. Sheen brought them to live with Richards and their half-brother and sister where the boys seem happy. Mueller, however, has asked a California court to give her brother custody. If Richards claims custody or Sheen objects, who wins? In Louisiana, if no parent is able or willing to care for the children, courts must award custody to the person best able to care for them. While a blood relation like Mueller’s brother may seem to have an advantage in such a contest, at the end of the day the best interest of the children must prevail.
