The saga of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick is one that has been playing out in the media for years. The couple has been on again and off again repeatedly, and has recently announced another split. Is this just another case of celebrities that are unable to make it work, or is there more to this story? And, is there a chance the two might reconcile?
The International Business Times reported on the developing story, and had this to say:
● Kourtney may have had a change of heart about the split, and some sources say she is considering getting back together with Disick.
● Any reconciliation would require significant behavior changes on the part of Scott, namely with what Kardashian and many others believe to be a drinking and substance abuse problem.
Perhaps this latest split was nothing more than an attempt at tough love, a way for Kardashian to “force” Scott to grow up. If so, the move may prove beneficial to the couple’s children. As it stands now, both parents are reportedly spending time with the kids and there have not yet been discussions of custody. However, if reconciliation is not possible, a long and heated custody battle may take place. As with any domestic matter, the Court will look at what is in the best interests of the children, even though the pair are unmarried. When issues of child custody and visitation surface, clear evidence of what is best for the kids must be provided to the Court in order for decisions to be made that work. This is true for a celebrity couple, as well as for your case.
How you go about deciding what evidence will best show your position depends on the facts of your case. In some instances, the Court will take into consideration the wishes of the children. But, this most frequently happens with older kids. Other factors the Court takes into account are who provides the majority of the care for the kids, the emotional and financial stability of the parties, and how strong the bond is between parent and child. In today’s technological age, the Court might also look to social media or other online sources to determine which parent will provide a home that best meets the needs of the children. In Kourtney and Scott’s case, you can bet there won’t be any shortage of that type of evidence! For answers about your specific case, call our office today.
