Figler v. Figler

A divorcing couple had one minor child, Rebecca.  The court found that it is in the best interest of that child to be in the mother’s sole custody, with rights of reasonable visitation to be provided to the father.  Among the reasons cited was that the father “was also careless in his action’s with respect to Rebecca’s asthma.  He continued to smoke cigarettes in the house and he refused to provide her with appropriate medication.”
