Halle Berry Custody Battle Continues
Posted on Nov 1, 2011 12:00am PDT
Many Georgia residents know just how frustrating a custody battle can be.
It is emotionally exhausting for the parents, but most importantly, it
can be a significant emotional drain for the children involved. Georgia
residents are likely familiar with Halle Berry for her booming movie career.
She's appeared in countless movies, but lately has been making headlines
for another reason with her ongoing child custody case.
Halle Berry appeared in court once again. She is fighting for custody
of the five-year-old daughter she shares with her former boyfriend, Gabriel
Aubry. This is a case that has been in the news and in tabloids since
the couple ended their relationship, and this was not their first court
appearance. So far, it appears that Berry has the upper hand in this heated
In the past, Berry expressed concerns for her daughter's safety when
she is alone with her father. The reason for the former couples latest
court appearance centered around Aubrey's visitations with his daughter
and whether or not he would be allowed to be alone with his daughter.
Previously, Berry requested that a nanny be present during those visits.
In court, Aubrey hoped to have that decision overturned, but the judge
turned him down.
In child custody disputes, a judge must decide what is in the best interests
of the child involved. The problem is that parents often disagree as to
what they believe is truly in their children's best interests, and
when they cannot agree, a court must decide for them.
