Anna Faris and Chris Pratt find unique family law solutions

Few people in Georgia -- if any -- look to celebrities when dealing with difficult issues, like divorce. However, acting couple Chris Pratt and Anna Faris recently settled their family law issues in a surprisingly amicable manner. Tackling tough topics like alimony, child support and child custody, the pair likely used their prenuptial agreement as a guide on certain issues.

The couple originally separated in Aug. 2017, although they did not file for divorce until several months later. Now, less than a year after their filing, their settlement was signed off by a private judge. As part of their settlement, they both waived their rights to alimony not just right now, but also in the future.

Faris and Pratt will also share joint custody of their 6-year-old son, and have agreed to live within five miles of each other until he completes the sixth grade. The parents also agreed to provide 30 days written notice to the other if they plan to travel internationally with their son. Child support also will not play a part in their post-divorce lives. Instead, they will jointly fund a separate bank account, from which they will cover his regular expenses, like school fees, clothes and more.

This unconventional approach to support may actually see a rise in popularity as more Georgia parents choose joint custody arrangements. This is especially true if, aside from sharing physical custody, divorcing parents also earn roughly similar incomes. However, this unique family law solution may not be appropriate for everyone, and families should be certain to pursue settlements that best reflect their unique situations.
