As a Jacksonville Child Custody Attorney, it is rare that I see a custody battle that has a lighthearted feel. However, the first ever funny child custody dispute may be in the works. How could that possibly be? Well, comedian Will Farrell recently announced the sequel to the classic Anchorman flick. And, it is rumored that the movie may feature Ron Burgendy facing off against Veronica Corningstone (played by Christina Applegate) for custody of their child.
Adam McKay is co-writing the movie with Farrell, and suggested in a recent interview a few plot topics. McKay may not be a familiar face, but you may remember him from the viral video "The Landlord," which featured Will Ferrell facing off against his toddler landlord, played by McKay's daughter, Pearl. During his interview, McKay claimed he did not want to give away too much information, and stated vaguely that the story may involve a custody battle in addition to what he referred to as "bowling for dollars." It's unclear what that one means.
All levity aside, amusing child custody battles exist only in the world of Hollywood comedy. In reality, child custody issues hopefully never reach the "battle" stage, as you and the other parent of your child will ideally reach a mutual agreement with primary focus on the benefit of your child. Even this stage, however, can be overwhelming. It's good to seek help, and a Jacksonville Child Custody Attorney can help you with the process. But don't forget to rely on your other support networks, too. Your friends and family will be crucial during this time, and you need to cool off every once in a while in order to keep a level head. A reasonable attitude and a sense of humor can go a long way in any negotiation, and child custody is no different.
If you are going through custody issues, contact a Jacksonville Child Custody Attorney to set up an appointment. If you need a break from it all, check out the first Anchorman movie, which is always good for a few laughs.
