According to People Magazine (and now on the AP), Halle Berry was recently ordered to pay $16,000 per month in child support. Too much? Perhaps. It seems hard to fathom how a child could need $16,000 per month – especially when she and her ex- have shared custody. But there are so many factors involved – one of which, in New York at least, is Nahia’s standard of living before her parents split up.
A lot of people have a lot to say about this – at this writing, there are over 1,400 comments and the article has been online for less than 24 hours! So my real question is this — did Halle Berry want privacy? One of the advantages of mediation and collaborative is that if you come to an agreement yourselves, the public will know nothing. And wouldn’t THAT be in the best interest of their child?
