Judge rules in favor of Brown in custody case

California fans who have supported musician Chris Brown through his child custody and support battle will be relieved to find out that the judge who heard the most recent arguments ruled in his favor on every count. This keeps the couple's existing joint custody and child support plan in place.

The child custody arrangement that was in place prior to the most recent filings was joint custody between the parties. According to the arrangement, Brown has 12 days of unmonitored time with his daughter each month. Additionally, he is required to pay $2,500 in child support each month. Reports say that Brown also pays for his daughter's nannies, education and medical expenses.

The child's mother recently tried to change the child custody arrangement so that she would have sole custody and Brown would only have supervised visitation. She also petitioned the court to require Brown to take a drug test. The judge ruled on August 12 against all of the motions. The judge also ordered the mother to repay Brown for the attorney fees he had previously been ordered to pay for her to have a lawyer for the hearing. The mother had previously petitioned the court to increase child support to $16,000 but then withdrew it. The move caused a social media flurry that accused the mother of being a gold digger and criticizing her for trying to take advantage of the R&B singer's celebrity status.

Individuals who would like to change their existing child custody or support plan may want to have the assistance of a family law attorney. It will require the filing of a modification motion and then appearing in court to demonstrate why it will be necessary.

  • 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)
