Celebrity divorce finalizes child custody arrangements

Monday, July 16, 2018

A high-profile divorce often captures the attention of the public, such as the child custody issues between Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez during their divorce. Texas readers may have noted, these two famous singers have been in the divorce process for several years. As it is with many non-famous couples, they have had to work through the details of support and child custody arrangements.

While some divorces may be amicable, this legal process is not without emotional difficulty. It is particularly difficult to determine arrangements pertaining to child custody and it can take months or years to finalize all arrangements. The divorce of this famous couple illustrates that no couple or family is shielded from the difficulty of the divorce process. Texas readers should note that the two singers finally agreed to an arrangement allowing the mother to have primary custody of their two children.

Also included in their custody arrangement is the agreement to keep the privacy of their children a priority. Any couple, regardless of income level, can work with legal representation through mediation and negotiations to pursue their individual goals. This can include education and religious preferences. The right to negotiations and fighting for desired outcomes is available to all couples.

A divorce is difficult, but it can be faster and simpler when a couple or individual has clearly outlined goals before beginning the process. As the divorce of this famous couple illustrates, divorce has the potential to last for many months or years. For this reason, understanding all options for child custody and support can help expedite this process.
