The positive examples of celebrity child custody

Oftentimes when Massachusetts media outlets decide to discuss a divorce proceeding amongst celebrities, they are not the most flattering. While celebrity divorces can show prime examples of the types of issues many individuals could face during their own divorce, such as conflicts over child custody and alimony amounts, there are rarely stories which focus on the positive or well-handled side of their situations. However, that is not for a lack of examples.

Take, for example, the divorce between Jennifer Lopez and her former husband Marx Anthony. The two had two children with one another, but were able to settle their child custody issues without much conflict. At the center of their motivation to cooperate was the well-being of the children, whom they did not want to burden with more difficulty than a divorce already comes with.

Another less traditional example is the child custody agreement between Charlie Sheen and his ex-wife, Denise Richards. While Sheen may appear in the news for other reasons, the relationship the two have managed to build after their divorce appears to be working for their kids benefit. Both of the parents still play a role in their children's lives, and there is not public fighting over the issues.

What may help in both of these situations is a similar understanding of parenting structures and pre-existing agreement over how a divorce should be handled. Unfortunately, not all individuals going through a divorce will be able to have the same level of agreement with their spouse. In fact, some divorces may be caused by that very disagreement.

When this is the case, it is important to try to remain civil, even when emotions are running high. Maintaining composure can be beneficial during divorce negotiations, as well as if a child custody disagreement does to court. For more tips on how to manage a divorce, speaking to an experience attorney may provide more answers.
