Anna Faris and Chris Pratt settle child custody, support issues

On behalf of North Tampa Legal Group posted in child custody on Thursday, November 8, 2018.

Celebrities who choose to utilize prenuptial agreements are often criticized, but is that criticism justified? In the case of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, probably not. The couple recently finalized their divorce in what was a seemingly agreeable process, addressing tough topics such as child custody and spousal support. Their prenuptial agreement may have had a helping hand in concluding things as amicably as possible.

Florida movie fans may already know that Pratt and Faris were married for eight years before they separated in Aug. 2017, filing for divorce only months later. Their divorce was recently finalized, during which both waived their rights to spousal support not just now, but also for in the future. Neither parent will pay child support at this time either, although that could change. For now, they have agreed to fund a joint bank account, which will be used for their 6-year-old son.

Their custody agreement is perhaps not as concrete as most people are familiar with. Instead of establishing a concrete calendar which they can follow, the celebrity parents have agreed to be flexible. Custody arrangements will revolve around their work and filming schedules.

Flexible joint child custody agreements may not be appropriate for everyone, but they can be a good option for Florida parents who have constantly changing work schedules. Like with other forms of joint custody, this does require a significant commitment to co-parenting. Before moving forward with any type of decision on custody, families should evaluate what is in their child’s best interests and be sure to create an agreement around that basis.
