Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman already working on child custody

People in Connecticut might know actress Drew Barrymore from her starring roles in films like "Scream" and "Never Been Kissed," but more recent headlines focus on her divorce rather than her pedigreed acting prowess. Barrymore and her husband, Will Kopelman, have been married for four years and share two daughters. The couple has reportedly already been discussing child custody arrangements.

Those close to Barrymore and Kopelman admit that the couple had experienced marital issues for quite some time. An ongoing issue was apparently related to living arrangements, with Barrymore wanting to move the family to another state. In a past interview, Barrymore also admitted that their marriage did not necessarily focus on their relationship, but rather on their 3 and 1-year-old daughters.

Kopelman has not publicly commented on the divorce other than to say that he feels devastated. However, the couple has been able to continue putting their focus on their children in order to figure out the best possible living arrangement. Many speculate that both Barrymore and Kopelman will remain where they are in New York City in order to allow their 3-year-old to continue attending her preschool.

Filing for divorce can be difficult for some people, and having children can make that decision even more complicated. Most parents in Connecticut simply want what is in their child's best interests. In general, parents can work together like Barrymore and Kopelman in order to create a child custody agreement that reflects the best interests of the child rather than the parents. However, in instances when this is simply not possible, parents can proceed to court, where a judge will have the final say on the matter.
