Many people look at the rich or the famous with some degree of awe or envy. While their life of luxury and seeming ease may seem enviable, many celebrities have just as many issues as the average person in Florida. While money may be less of an issue, celebrities such as Liam Gallagher, a famous singer, also may have to deal with child support and custody issues. Often, their disputes are difficult to settle and could be complicated by constant media attention.
Gallagher’s youngest of four children — all by different women — is at the heart of the legal battle. Reports indicate that he met the child’s mother, Liza Ghorbani, in 2010 when she interviewed him for an article she was writing for a newspaper. They now share a 16-month-old daughter together.
Gallagher and Ghorbani have been locked in a legal battle over the young girl, but it now appears that a settlement may be imminent. A judge has recently given representatives for each side three weeks to come to an agreement. If no agreement is reached, the case will then go to trial. Some reports indicate that any agreement will remain confidential. In the meantime, Gallagher will continue to make child support payments.
Whenever a couple tries to make determinations regarding child support and custody, personal feelings and emotions could cloud discussions. It is important in many cases for both parents to keep the child’s best interest at the center of discussions. By doing so, Florida couples may be much more likely to avoid contention and avoid a lengthy custody battle that could have a negative impact on a child and his or her relationship with one or both parents.
