Halle Berry and ex-boyfriend settle child support issues

Atlantic City parents may be interested in the latest news involving a custody fight between a Hollywood actress and her former boyfriend. The two have been embroiled in a legal battle for years over their daughter, but a settlement on some issues has been reached, according to sources.

While on the set of a Versace photo shoot in 2005, 47-year-old actress Halle Berry met model Gabriel Aubry. The two had a daughter together in 2008. After their breakup, Berry and Aubry began their dispute over the custody of their child. Berry attempted to bring the child to France with her in 2012, but a judge denied her request.

The two have now come to a settlement on issues of child support. Berry has agreed to pay Aubry a sum of $16,000 per month in child support until the girl finishes high school or turns 19. There will also be a retroactive support payment of $115,000. In addition, Berry will reportedly cover Aubry's attorneys' fees at a sum of $300,000. The daughter's medical and other healthcare expenses will be shared by the parents. Berry will pay the cost of her daughter's education as well. The agreement was approved by a judge at the end of May.

Other questions regarding custody and visitation rights were not addressed in this agreement. For those in similar situations, an attorney may be helpful in examining their client's financial needs and negotiating a fair settlement with the ex-spouse. The attorney may also be able to represent them in front of a judge to decide their child support issues if necessary.
