Actress and former fiance compromise on child custody settlement

A bitter child custody battle between actress Uma Thurman and her one-time fiance French billionaire Arpad Busson finally came to an end earlier this month. The judge presiding over the proceeding praised the two on their ability to finally work out an equitable child custody settlement. The judge concluded his remarks by saying the former couple compromised in order to ensure the happiness of their three-year-old daughter.

Thurman and Busson's on-again, off-again relationship began in 2004. In 2009, the two declared that the relationship was over. However, they had a daughter together in 2012. Even as recently as March of this year, the two were linked together as a couple. Despite this, Busson brought legal action against Thurman in 2014, seeking to spend more time with their daughter.

The details of their new child custody agreement have not been made public, but news reports about the former couple mention a co-parenting plan. Sources also say that the the co-parenting plan the two signed will last for three years. Reportedly, both Thurman and Busson left the legal proceedings with smiles and in high spirits.

North Carolina residents currently facing their own custody battles can take heart from the famous couple's ability to come to an agreement. Celebrity family law battles are notoriously difficult to resolve, with child custody matters often being the most contentious. Thurman and Busson are a good example of how compromise combined with concern about the child's best interests can result in a successful settlement.

Making decisions about child custody is never an easy process, but parents can find success when they put the welfare of their children above their own concerns. Working with a family law attorney is a good way to facilitate a successful child custody agreement.
