Reality TV star's child custody dispute resolved

Florida residents who have been through a divorce with children know that child custody disputes can be emotionally exhausting. Those familiar with reality TV star Bethenny Frankel may find it interesting to learn that recently Frankel and her ex-spouse have resolved a bitter custody dispute and agreed to co-parent their now 4-year-old daughter.

The celebrity couple's child custody dispute started approximately a year ago in 2013 when Frankel filed for divorce from her husband. Accusations flew; Frankel claimed that her ex-husband was angry at her for filing divorce paperwork and threatened to destroy her. Frankel's attorneys claimed that she was using their 4-year-old daughter to promote her brand.

According to news reports, Frankel asked for primary physical and legal custody of the couple's daughter while her ex-husband asked for shared custody. The exact terms of the child custody agreement were not made public. Through his attorney, Frankel's ex-husband expressed relief that the child custody dispute had been resolved. The two agreed to co-parent their daughter, meaning the 4-year-old will be raised by both of them.

No one doubts that child custody issues in any divorce or separation are an emotional topic. Either party in a fit of anger may say something they regret. No matter how contentious a divorce may get, it is very important for parents not to let their emotions cloud their judgment, and to work together in the child's best interest. An experienced family law attorney can help ensure that a spouse's legal rights are respected and a satisfactory outcome is reached.
