Halle Berry settles with ex-boyfriend over child support

South Carolina movie fans may be aware of the recent settlement between Halle Berry, the celebrated film actress, and her former boyfriend in connection with child support payments. Their six-year-old child, a daughter, will be supported financially by her mother to the amount of nearly $200,000 a year.

The settlement was arrived at on May 30, when a California judge approved an agreement where Berry will pay $16,000 a month in child support payments to her ex-boyfriend, as well as making a retroactive payments totaling $115,000 and $300,000 to his legal team in order to cover their fees. Berry also accepts responsibility for her daughter's future college tuition, but she and the father have agreed to split the costs of any medical bills.

The order from the judge is only relevant to child support payments, not child custody arrangements. The former couple were involved in a custody dispute in 2012, in which the court blocked Berry from moving with their daughter to France after the father had objected to the relocation. Berry is currently married to another man, with whom she has an 8-month-old son.

Anyone who has fallen into a dispute over child custody or support arrangements with a former spouse or partner may choose to seek legal representation in their dealings with the courts and negotiations with the other parent. A lawyer may be able to give them helpful legal advice and guide them through the details of the case. Although it is rare for the parties involved in divorce settlements to be so intransigent as to force the issue to trial, the assistance of a lawyer can help to avoid the serious problems that lead to escalation, drama, and hurt feelings.
