Kelis and Nas continue to disagree over child custody

On Behalf of | Jan 10, 2018 | Child Custody |

When children are involved, parents in Pennsylvania and elsewhere often need the assistance of a family law attorney following a divorce until any shared children reach the age of adulthood. Singer-songwriter Kelis and rapper Nas are examples of many parents who need family law legal assistance. Although the couple has been divorced for years, they continue to disagree over child custody.

Kelis is famous for her popular song “Milkshake.” She and Nas were married in 2005, but their marriage ended four years later. The couple discovered they were expecting their only child together towards the end of their marriage. Their son is now six years old.

Nas reports that Kelis has not been agreeable to forming a lasting child custody agreement with them to allow an appropriate amount of time with his son. He recently filed an official request seeking weekend visitation with his son for the first, third and fifth weekends of every month. Instead of agreeing with the request, Kelis has requested a court hearing to make a decision. The court hearing has not been set at this time.

Any divorce is difficult on a couple, the children and any other family or friends involved. Fortunately, the assistance of an attorney can assist a parent through a difficult child custody agreement to make the process as smooth as possible for the parents and involved children. As in this case, many parents require assistance years following a divorce whether it is due to disagreeing parents or a change in life circumstances; some circumstances may necessitate a change in a previous agreement. Pennsylvania attorneys can advise parents on the best approach to achieving the parent’s goals and taking into consideration the best interest of the child.
