I’m always interested in how the press report celebrity divorces. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan's divorce has said to have finalised two years after their decision to separate.

The recent press interest has concerned the arrangements for their daughter.

Encouragingly, it appears these parents have found an out of court method to agree how best to arrange their daughter’s time, incorporating their hectic work schedules as well as dealing with how they will manage social media posts concerning her.

Parents working together to achieve a solution in the best interests of their child is more likely to lead to a conclusion that works for everyone in the longer term. Alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, also enables agreements to be put in place about issues outside of the standard staying contact and holidays eg social media, introduction of new partners etc.
