Chris Pratt and Anna Faris agree to joint child custody

Celebrities are not generally well-known for handling complicated divorce issues with grace and dignity. However, Ohio fans of Anna Faris and Chris Pratt might have been pleasantly surprised at the seemingly cordial nature of the couple's recent split. The celebrity couple recently finalized their divorce less than a year after filing, addressing sometimes complicated topics like spousal support and child custody.

The acting duo had signed a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot, which addressed the terms of a potential divorce and laid the groundwork for moving through a split. This likely helped the couple after they filed for divorce in Dec. 2017. They cited irreconcilable differences in their filing, and both Faris and Pratt waived any rights to alimony either right now or in the future.

The parents will share joint custody of their young son. However, neither plans to pay child support, although it appears as if they are open to utilizing this type of support in the future. Instead, they plan to maintain a bank account, funded annually by both parents. The money in the account will then go toward their son's monthly expenses, ensuring that he is financially supported by both of his parents.

Both Faris and Pratt have demanding work schedules, and as such agreed to maintain flexibility in regard to their child custody agreement and actual shared parenting time. For Ohio parents who also have unpredictable work schedules or must travel regularly, this approach can be a good idea. However, it does require a significant amount of co-parenting from both parties, so those who are not splitting amicably may want to consider a more traditional custody arrangement.
