Child custody: Cooperation is key in resolving disputes

When parents in California divorce, they should strive to put their differences aside and work together to provide a stable environment for their children. However, this does not always happen. Parents may be unable to come to a suitable agreement, causing a child custody battle to ensue. Although they may be thinking they are doing what's best for their children, a lengthy custody battle only causes suffering for families. These types of disputes are fairly common today, including among celebrities.

A lengthy child custody battle between well-known actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has been making headlines for weeks. In 2016, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt after two years or marriage and over 10 years as a couple. The couple has six children together. Apparently, Pitt wanted a 50/50 joint custody arrangement, but reports said Jolie wanted sole physical custody of the children.

This sparked a notorious battle that has been documented in tabloids and newspapers around the world. However, it appears that the couple set some of their differences aside. According to recent reports, some of the children are spending Christmas with their father. Reportedly, the former spouses are working together on a visitation agreement.

Although it can be difficult given the circumstances, parents should try to be as cooperative as possible for the well-being of children. Undoubtedly, it is always helpful to have understanding of rights. Those in California who have questions about child custody or child custody arrangements could benefit by consulting an attorney. A knowledgeable and experienced legal representative can help parents obtain the best possible outcome relative to their situation.
