When a couple with children in Portland Oregon decides to split up they will ultimately have to decide who will have custody of those children. They might also have to determine how much monthly child support the primary earner will have to pay the custodial parent. Child support is one of those hot-button issues that can lead to fighting and, in many cases, a court battle. However, in some cases couples can work things out before they go to court.
According to recent reports, Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry has agreed to a monthly child support amount with her former boyfriend Gabriel Aubry. Ms. Berry will reportedly pay her ex $16,000 a month to help support the former couple’s 6-year-old daughter. The actress will also reportedly pay for her daughter’s college tuition.
The couple will share in paying for her medical care and Ms. Berry is also responsible for her ex boyfriend’s legal fees as well as more than $100,000 for past child support. The monthly installments will continue until the couple’s daughter turns 19 or graduates from high school, whichever comes first. The settlement ends a lengthy child support battle.
