McGreevey and his ex-wife to bring up daughter together · 2007-04-29 13:48
Former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey and his estranged wife, Dina Matos McGreevey, agreed to have joint custody of their daughter. The resolution is the latest development in what's been a very public divorce battle since the former governor announced he is gay.
It was the first time the pair appeared publicly together since the shocking announcement in 2004.
After meeting behind closed doors with their attorneys, both parties also agreed on hiring a parenting coordinator, who will be utilized to solve parenting issues between the two without having to go to court. They also agreed that Matos McGreevey would be the primary parent of their 5-year-old daughter Jacqueline, who would visit her father every other weekend.
According to WCBS-TV New York, attorneys for the two both said they were pleased with the outcome of the proceedings.
There have been more protests outside the French Parliament building, where lawmakers Tuesday (May 3) begin debating controversial reforms to the country's labor laws, which have provoked unrest across France for months.
