Child custody: Where will Madonna’s son live?

Parents who are divorcing in Massachusetts may decide to live in different cities, but with the help of their attorneys they can hopefully figure out a parenting plan that works well for everyone. This can even be done if the cities they plan to live in are far apart or if one parent has to move out of state. But imagine if you had to figure out a parenting plan if one of the two parents moves out of the country?

This is the issue the famed singer Madonna is currently dealing with. The issue is being heard in a court in London and a court in New York. Her ex-husband Guy Ritchie, who is the father of their 15-year-old son Rocco, lives in London.

Their current arrangement is that Rocco will live with his mother in New York but visit his father in London. But after a December visit to his father last year, the teenager apparently did not want to leave.

Recently, the issue was discussed in a London court. The judge decided to stop the proceedings in London and said that the New York court will have jurisdiction over the case. He also begged the parents to stop fighting over the custody of their son and to find an amicable solution in this case. He explained to them that their son will only be a child for so long and that they should be using their time to be with their son.

Many parents have been through a similar situation and understand that it can be very frustrating. With the help of a family law attorney, there is hope that the two sides can reach an agreement that satisfies everyone and that is in the best interests of the child.
