When a couple with children divorces, it is best for the children if the couple is amicable in their relations with ease other. This is especially true concerning celebrity couples as every move they make is in the news. Unfortunately for the children of Usher and his wife Tameka, the relations between the former couple have been less than friendly.
In private mediation, Usher and his former wife Tameka Raymond have been ordered to work out a temporary custody agreement.
Usher filed for divorce from Tameka in June 2009 after almost two years of marriage. Last year Tameka filed court documents in Georgia asking the singer be stripped of joint custody of their sons, Usher, four, an Naviyd, three. A judge at Fulton County Court Tuesday ordered the former couple try to work things out between them. If the pair fails to do so, then the judge will impose a temporary order.
Tameka accused Usher of being behind on child support payments in the amount of $34,000. She is also requesting more child support because Usher’s income has risen considerably since they divorced. Tameka also suggested that Usher is an unfit father and demanded that he be tested for drugs. She thought he was “popping pills and who-knows-what-else” around his kids.
Usher denies the drug abuse allegations and wants an increase in the time he’s allowed to spend with his children. Right now, the pair share custody of their sons.
If you have a child custody dispute that cannot be resolved, it is in your best interest to be represented by an experienced child custody attorney who can assist you in navigating through a court case involving disputed custody.
