When parents decide not to have a romantic relationship with one another, determining child custody can be difficult. Some parents here in Texas are able to come to an agreement easily, while others may struggle for various reasons. Singer Jennifer Hudson recently made an agreement with her ex-fiance regarding custody of their 9-year-old son, after a two-year child custody dispute.
The former couple split in 2017 and Hudson filed a protective order against her former fiance, saying that he pushed her while she was holding the boy. She dropped the petition eventually, but it is unclear why, though her fiance, a former pro-wrestler denied pushing her. A police investigation did not find sufficient evidence of abuse or harassment. The two filed several different motions against one another over the course of their custody battle.
Fortunately, the two recently managed to come to an agreement of shared custody. The agreement forbids overnight romantic guests for both parents while the boy is in their respective homes as well as includes other provisions regarding the boy's education. Hudson also has to pay child support to her ex, though it is not known how much.
Stars are just like everyone else -- they have to consider what is best for their children. Parents here in Texas who are having difficulty making or enforcing an agreement about child custody may want to involve an attorney. An experienced family law attorney can help with a child custody dispute when a parent is unsure of where to turn.
