Celebrities Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were married for eight years. During that time, they had a son together. When they determined that their relationship was no longer sustainable, they decided to divorce, a decision with which many Texas couples might relate. The decision prompted the need to resolve several other issues, including where they would live and what they would do with the multimillion-dollar home they had been living in for approximately two years.
Faris says she and her ex wanted to make sure their child was surrounded by a strong network of support and that he would continue to feel safe, protected and loved after his parents finalized their divorce. Many parents incorporate personalized terms into their child custody agreements to address issues that they feel are important and pertinent to their unique circumstances. In this case, Faris and Pratt agreed to live within five miles of each other until their son completes sixth grade.
The former couple also had to decide what to do about the 1979 Mediterranean-style luxury home they shared during their marriage. They had purchased the home for just over $3 million and recently announced that they have closed on a sale of the home for $4.75 million. The sale has taken place two years after the finalization of the divorce.
Pratt has since remarried and had another child with his new wife. And Faris has announced her. Faris says she and Pratt are committed to peacefully co-parenting and agree to always keep their son’s best interests in mind. Any Texas parent concerned about child custody, child support or other divorce-related issues may wish to discuss the situation with an experienced family law attorney, especially if attempts to resolve the issue have been unsuccessful.
