Actress claims husband using custody of son for monetary reasons

When a couple with children decides to end their marriage there are many difficult issues that will have to be worked on and eventually settled. One of those issues can be the custody of any children involved, as well as the amount of monthly child support one parent might have to pay the other. These issues can get very complicated, which is why some couples in the Clinton Township area have to go to court to settle their differences.

TV actress Zoe McClellan is reportedly battling for full custody of her 18-month-old son after her estranged husband has asked for joint custody in his divorce filing. According to Ms. McClellan, who starred in the TV series “JAG,” her husband has never been a hands-on father. In fact she claims that he does not even know how to put their son to sleep. She also claims that he is only asking for custody of their son in order to get to her money for child support.

Her husband, J.P. Gillain, who is reportedly an out-of-work actor, is aware that Ms. McClellan recently signed a deal to star in the new TV series “NCIS: New Orleans.” The actress will reportedly be paid $45,000 per episode. She also wants to move to New Orleans where the show is being shot. She has asked a judge for temporary full legal custody so she can take her son with her,

As this case shows, child custody and support issues can lead to difficult battles between parents. Therefore, it’s usually a good decision to contact an experienced family law attorney for help.
