Finalized child custody arrangements often take a lot of back-and-forth negotiations as well as compromises by both parties, as many Ohio parents know. Even when the relationship between the parents has become filled with contention, putting the needs of the child first will benefit all involved. Stevie J, best known for starring in Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, and Puerto Rican rapper Joseline Hernandez have seemed to settle on an acceptable child custody and support agreement.

The two had an on-again, off-again dating relationship since 2013, during which Ms. Hernandez gave birth to their daughter, Bonnie Bella in late 2016. The two worked together to determine the specifics of their agreement. The former couple will share legal custody of their daughter, but Ms. Hernandez will have primary physical custody.

As far as child support, the two each bring in around the same amount each month, a sum of approximately $30,000. However, Stevie J will be paying support of $1,000 monthly. They have also agreed that neither will have overnight guests during the time that Bonnie Bella is in their care.

It is great when parents can put aside their differences and work together to decide the particulars of a child custody arrangement based upon the perceived best interests of the child. However, sometimes that is not possible and the support of an experienced attorney may be needed to ensure all legal requirements are met. An attorney who is thoroughly familiar with the laws of Ohio can help a client establish terms on which both parents can agree.
