Best interests of the child comes first for these celebrities

Washington parents who divorce often encounter challenges regarding child-related issues, such as custody, financial support or other family matters. Those whose goal is to develop an amicable co-parent relationship may want to follow the example of numerous Hollywood celebrities who say the best interests of the child is what is most important. These former couples are willing to do whatever it takes to avoid conflict in their co-parenting plans.

Bruce Willis and Demi Moore have enjoyed an amicable co-parent relationship for years. Their daughter, who is now older, says she always appreciated the fact that she did not have to choose between parents for birthdays or other special occasions. Her parents were always willing to share special events as a family so she could be with both parents at the same time.

Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie stay closely connected when it comes to their son. Duff said it is par for the course when you choose to have a child with someone. Even if adults decide to end a relationship, they must be willing to maintain active, healthy relationships together in order to do what is best for their children.

Not every set of parents is able to accomplish such goals, however. Some disagree regarding the best interests of the child, especially if one parent violates a court order. Aryn Drake-Lee experienced this when her former partner, Jesse Williams, reportedly introduced their child to his new romantic partner before the relationship had lasted six months, which is what they agreed to in their parenting plan. As a result, Drake-Lee filed a petition for sole custody in court. Any Washington parent concerned about similar issues may turn to an experienced family law attorney for guidance and support.
