As fans know, Cardi B and her estranged husband Offset are likely headed for a divorce after the Bodak Yellow rapper announced their split. But while the two have every right to leave the relationship if they are not happy, the hip-hop couple also has a baby together – daughter Kulture. That being said, HollywoodLife chatted with a lawyer about the custody situation, revealing that it would be really surprising if Cardi wouldn’t get primary custody of the bundle of joy.
Family Law attorney Jonathan V. Dunn, P.C. told the outlet that it is ‘uncommon for the mom of a child of tender years to not be awarded primary physical custody of such a child.’
What that means is that while Kulture would live most of the time with her mom, any decisions involving her would be shared equally between the two parents.
The lawyer went on to explain that usually, the mom and dad share joint legal custody but one parent holds the tiebreaker authority on any decisions regarding healthcare, religious upbringing, education, and extracurricular activities.
As for child support, ‘In Georgia, the court is required to consider the financial circumstance of both parents in calculating child support. Additional factors affecting child support include: childcare costs, health insurance, uncovered medical expenses, and extraordinary costs for education, medical or extracurricular matters.’
Regardless of all of that, at the moment, Offset and Cardi are not yet involved in a custody battle and they might even avoid it completely if they decide to reunite.
After all, Offset did take to social media a couple of days ago to tell the world how much he misses Cardi!
Besides, another insider previously shared with HollywoodLife that Cardi needs some time, but she would ‘definitely’ give her husband of one year another chance.
