Former Celebrity Couple Continues To Battle Over Child Custody

On behalf of Gary Kirk of Kirk Montoute Dawson LLP posted in Family Law on Monday, November 26, 2018.

The battle over their son continues to rage between Brian Austin Green and Vanessa Marcil. Marcil, a citizen of Canada and her former partner, Austin Green, have been fighting over child custody of their son for more than a decade. She has now accused Green and his now wife, Megan Fox, of cutting the 16-year-old out of their lives. She said Austin Green and Fox tried to get sole custody of the boy 12 years ago when she was served legal papers, but today he supposedly isn’t allowed to know where his biological father and stepmother, along with his half siblings, live.

When the boy was four, Austin Green and Fox petitioned the court for sole custody of him, which would have allowed Marcil to see her son for four days every month. They also wanted the actress to pay them child support. Austin Green and Fox lost that case and also lost the civil case in which they sought $200,000 from Marcil.

Marcil said fighting over children only hurts the children and it’s important to do what’s best for them. Children love both parents no matter what the parent is going through, she added. Marcil and Austin Green met on the set of Beverly Hills 90210 and had their son in 2002.

Child custody battles can be financially draining and emotionally exhausting. A lawyer in Canada who is experienced in family law would be able to help a client to understand the often confusing processes involved with children and divorce. Understanding the law may help parents to do what is in the best interests of their children.
