'Vampire Diaries' star asks for child custody arrangement change

One significant issue that can come up between divorced or separated parents is child custody. What child custody arrangement is in place can be very impactful on the parents and their child.

Sometimes, a parent will take legal action to try to get a standing child custody arrangement changed. A parent will sometimes take such actions in response to events that potentially bring into question whether the child custody arrangement that is in place is in the best interests of the child involved. A request for a change in child custody can have many complicated aspects and can involve many issues. What decision a court ultimately makes in connection to such a request can have significant impacts.

Recently, a request for a child custody change has been made by a celebrity. The celebrity in question is Zach Roerig. Roerig stars on the television series "Vampire Diaries."

According to an article on the International Business Times' website, Roerig has a 2-year-old daughter. Reportedly, Roerig has made a request to a court asking that the current custody arrangement regarding the child be changed.

In this request, Roerig says that the child's mother has had various legal troubles (including three arrests) and is currently in federal prison. In connection to these claims, Roerig is requesting that sole custody of the child be granted to him.

It will be interesting to see what happens in this case as it progresses and whether the court decides to grant the child custody change Roerig has requested.
