Musician seeking joint custody of son in California

Musician Louis Tomlinson has reportedly filed for joint custody of his 5-month-old son. Tomlinson, who had a temporary custody agreement with the infant's mother, wants to equally split the physical and legal custody of their son.

According to various sources, the temporary child custody agreement was in relation to access to the baby. While the agreement did not stipulate for overnight visits, it did set hours of visitation each week. It was supposed to last a few weeks after the birth. However, the mother has reportedly been inconsistent with allowing Tomlinson access to their child leading the musician to file for joint custody. Tomlinson and the woman were not married at the time of the baby's birth.

Sources also stated that the agreement included a $15,000 monthly payment for child support from Tomlinson to the mother and that the musician was renting a $1 million home in Calabasas for the mother and child. If the musician has filed, and the couple is unable to come to an agreement, the dispute might result in a court battle, in which case a judge will then order a custody arrangement that it deems appropriate.

In custody disputes, the priority for the judge will be looking for the best interests of the child. The evidence provided by both parties will have to show that the decisions being made are consistent with protecting the child and providing the most stable situation possible. A parent who is involved in this type of situation may want to have legal assistance when the case goes to court.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)


    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
