Former reality TV stars come to terms in child custody battle

There are many important aspects to consider when a couple in the Clinton Township area goes through divorce. However, if children are involved, then deciding who will have custody of those children is usually the most important decision a couple will have to make. Sometimes that can be simple, but many times it can lead to heated exchanges and even long, drawn-out court battles.

It appears that the ongoing custody battle between former “Real Housewives of New York,” stars Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy has finally come to an end. According to reports, Ms. Frankel filed for divorce in 2012 and the couple has been fighting for the parenting rights of their now 4-year-old daughter ever since. However, according to Mr. Hoppy’s attorney, the couple has reached a settlement in that issue.

According to reports, the couple will split parenting duties equally which will give their daughter the benefits of having both parents help raise her. It will also mean that she will no longer have to be the center of an ongoing, very public court battle between her parents.

It’s clear that this child custody battle, like many others, stirred a lot of emotions in both parties. Anytime parents can’t determine their own settlement in a child custody battle, then they will have to go to court and let a judge make that determination. If you are facing a child custody battle of your own, then contacting an experienced family law attorney might be the best move you can make.
