HGTV's Nicole Curtis battles ex over custody of son

California residents may be interested to learn that "Rehab Addict" star Nicole Curtis is battling her ex-boyfriend for custody of the couple's 1-year-old son. The pair have been fighting over child support issues since 2015.

According to court documents, the ex-boyfriend, 54, filed a complaint to take a paternity test shortly after the boy's birth last year. The test showed he is the father. In response, Curtis, 40, reportedly filed for interim child support, child care expenses and labor and delivery costs. She also accused her ex, a wealthy businessman, of earning substantially more money each week than he claimed. A family court ruled he must pay half of all birthing expenses not covered by insurance and wage-appropriate child support. He was also granted weekend parenting time, which began on Dec. 26, 2015.

Curtis filed to keep the custody case sealed, claiming her celebrity status made her vulnerable to stalkers. Her ex countered that social media followers are not stalkers, and the HGTV star sought publicity during her pregnancy. Meanwhile, Curtis accused her ex of driving their son around without a car seat and taking him outside in freezing weather with only a blanket for warmth. Just before the boy's first birthday, a court granted joint custody to Curtis and her ex-boyfriend. The child currently splits his time between his mother's home in California and his father's home in Minnesota.

California parents facing custody disputes may benefit by consulting with a family law attorney as soon as possible. Legal counsel could protect a parent's rights and negotiate agreements for child custody and child support.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)


    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
