Disagreement on child custody issues for Nas and Kelis

In any divorce where children are involved, some of the most contentious issues have to do with custody and visitation. However, deciding specifics in a child custody agreement does not need to be a dreaded event. Even when the parents’ schedules are hectic, the child should be the focus of any custody concerns either may have. Ohio fans of hip hop artist Nas may be interested in the child custody battle in which he is embroiled with his ex, R&B singer, Kelis.

The two were married in 2005 after dating two years. A few months before the birth of their son, Kelis filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple had only been married four years and had to wait another year for the divorce to be finalized. Nas is now claiming Kelis is not allowing father and son to spend time together.

Nas has tried over the years to establish a visitation schedule, but he says Kelis only lets him see their son at her convenience. He has developed his own visitation schedule, rotating even and odd years between the parents for holidays and other special events in the child’s life. He is hoping this schedule will eliminate any misunderstandings between mother and father.

Finding a visitation schedule that works for parents and child may be tricky, but in the end, it is worth the time and effort. Sometimes, a little help is needed by someone who can keep a sense of reason in an embittered situation. An Ohio family law attorney can guide parents to agree on a child custody arrangement that will be beneficial to all, keeping the well-being of the child in the forefront.
