Janet Jackson facing parenting plan battle in divorce

10783413_S.jpgThere's no telling how many Missouri residents will file for divorce this year. Some studies suggest the number of divorces is declining throughout the nation; however, many spouses are still choosing it as the most viable option for resolving their differences. If a couple who divorces has a child together, such as in superstar Janet Jackson's case, it often opens up a whole new set of challenges. One common topic of discussion usually involves a new parenting plan.

No two divorces are exactly the same. The court does its best to keep children's best interests a central focus when custody and/or visitation issues are addressed. It reviews each situation on a case-by-case basis, although there are state laws and guidelines to help the court form its decisions.

When a parent whose career outside the home necessitates frequent travel is seeking sole custody of a child, questions regarding who will care for the child while the parent is on the road (or whether the child will travel with the parent) will likely be addressed in court. Singer Janet Jackson, sister of the late, great Michael Jackson, can relate to such circumstances. She is currently involved in a child custody battle with her former husband of four years.

News of Jackson's return to the touring circuit has recently circulated, and she reportedly wants to make the most of stage time with her fans, while also trying to obtain a victory in her quest for sole custody of her infant son. Many Missouri spouses are able to amicably negotiate their own parenting plan. Others wind up in litigation, however, in which case aggressive representation in court can make a significant difference in achieving a successful outcome.
