Halle Berry loses bid to move daughter to France in custody fight

Some of the more complicated decisions to be made during a divorce often revolve around issues of child custody. While many couples are able to determine child custody arrangements through negotiations, often a custody case falls before a judge, who will determine a custody arrangement that is in the best interests of the child.

Generally, the need for courtroom intercession occurs when the spouses have widely divergent ideas on what those best interests are, as was the case of the custody battle between actress Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend.

The central issue in the custody case was Berry's desire to move her 4-year-old child to France. Berry maintained that France provided a safer environment in which to raise her child.

The father of the child objected to the move, stating that he would lose frequent access to his child if she were moved from her present home in the United States. Once the arguments were finished, the judge in the case rendered a verdict on Nov. 9, finding for the father and rejecting Berry's request to make the overseas move.

Residents of Colorado may often face the same type of child custody issues. No child custody plan is set in stone. Colorado residents have a right to challenge custody plans in court, both during and after a divorce, and changes can be made at any time if those changes are seen to be in the best interests of the child.
