Actress Halle Berry to pay child support to ex-boyfriend

Some Colorado residents may be interested to learn that Halle Berry has agreed to make monthly child support payments to her ex-boyfriend, model Gabriel Aubry. The pair have been involved in a custody dispute over their 6-year-old daughter since 2012 when a judge prevented Berry from moving out of the country with the child.

Berry, who is currently married to Olivier Martinez and has an 8-month-old son with him, has agreed to pay $115,000 in retroactive compensation to Aubry. In addition, she will pay $300,000 to cover his attorney fees. According to the agreement terms, she will pay $16,000 a month in child support to Aubry as well as share the cost of their daughter's health care. Berry is reportedly expected to pay for the child's education.

It can be difficult to agree upon what is in the best interests of the child during any form of custody dispute. Raising a child tends to require a significant financial investment on the part of both parents, and in cases such as this where they are no longer in a relationship, child support is usually intended as a means of compelling a parent without physical custody to nevertheless fulfill his or her obligations.

Individuals struggling to come to custody or child support agreements with their former partners may wish to enlist the assistance of a family law attorney. An attorney may be able to help their client through custody arrangements or the appeals process if one parent fails to adhere to the agreed upon requirements.
