Two sisters and their brother are collecting signatures in their home state of Connecticut to take an idea to state legislators. Their petition has to do with how kids participate in custody decisions. If they are successful, the idea could catch on with children in Illinois and elsewhere.
Chicago native and NBA star Dwyane Wade entered court recently in the next phase of his divorce proceedings. The divorce from his high school sweetheart was finalized in June, with the question of custody of the couple's children left open. The current court proceedings will determine where the two boys, aged 8 and 3, live and which parent has primary responsibility for their upbringing.
