Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon headed for divorce

Recording artist, Mariah Carey, and the host of America’s Got Talent, Nick Cannon, have been married for several years, and they seemed inseparable to most. Many Alabama residents may be aware that the couple is on their way to a divorce. In fact, Nick Cannon has stated that he cannot wait.

The couple became ready to call it quits after Nick Cannon publicly admitted to sleeping with reality star, Kim Kardashian. According to reports, Cannon grew weary of Carey’s unreasonable demands and wanted the marriage to end. Cannon stated that Carey wants him to wait on her hand and foot, and he’s sick of having to cater to her. Currently, both Carey and Cannon live separate lives, and when Cannon is not around his wife, he pretends that she does not exist.

Reports indicate that Cannon acts like he’s single and does not hesitate to buy drinks for attractive women when he’s out of town. Furthermore, the couple has been at each other’s heads for months. Now, the couple may need to divide up their assets and have a court decide on who will have custody of their children.

Child custody is usually awarded based on each parent’s ability to take care of the children. Some spouses are able to come to amicable agreements that never reach the courtroom. However, in other situations, resolutions are not reached during mediation, and litigation may be necessary. When courtroom battles are unavoidable, the family court system in Alabama typically resolves these types of cases and awards custody where appropriate under our divorce laws and the best interests of the children.
