Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have reached a custody settlement, however it’s imprecise for an apparent motive … Ben’s subject with alcohol.
As we now have already reported, the couple way back agreed to joint custody of their three children. There are 2 components to the settlement — authorized and bodily custody.
Legal custody is easy … they may collectively agree on choices that have an effect on the children, comparable to schooling and varied actions.
As for bodily custody, that’s the place it will get difficult. As we reported, the divorce was held up for a very long time as a result of Ben was on and off the bottle, and Jennifer didn’t wish to strike any custody association till he was sober and steady.
We’re informed the bodily custody settlement is imprecise … it doesn’t define any particular division of time with the children. But, we’re informed, a minimum of originally, Jen will get the lion’s share of custodial time, and when Ben has the children he could have a monitor to make sure he’s sober and the children are secure.
There’s one other issue — their children are older now — 12, 9 and 6 — they usually might take heed to Ben’s downside with alcohol and the way it’s affected their household, and they’re going to have a voice as properly.
