One Direction singer reaches temporary custody deal

Alaska music fans may be interested to learn that One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson has reached an agreement with his former girlfriend over the custody of their 1-month old son. The temporary deal was reportedly arranged just hours before a scheduled court hearing on the matter.

According to the agreement, Tomlinson has the right to see his child during the week but cannot have overnight visits. Media reports say the "Perfect" crooner hired lawyers after his ex-girlfriend, a stylist, said he could only have access to their son if he gave her money.

Tomlinson is said to be paying for his ex's home in Calabasas, California, and rents a $21 million Los Angeles house for co-parenting duties. He reportedly has not gotten a DNA test to prove paternity of the child, but he believes he is the father because he and his ex were dating exclusively when she became pregnant. Lawyers for both parties will soon negotiate a formal child custody and support agreement.

Some parents are able to quickly come to child custody agreements, but others face emotional and protracted court battles before a deal can be reached. A parent who is going through a divorce may find it helpful to work with a family law attorney when attempting to secure custody and visitation rights. Attorneys who have experience in these types of matters will often remind their clients that the focus should be squarely on what would be in the best interests of the child rather than the feeling that they are "winning" a battle.
