Channing Tatum has requested for a co-parenting counselor to aide him and ex-wife Jenna Dewan in their custody arrangement schedule for their child.
The Jump Street and Magic Mike star had finalized his divorce with ex-wife Jenna Dewan last week but asked for a monthly meeting to help the former couple’s parental disputes and schedule with their daughter Everly.
Legal documents stated that Tatum said that because of their work as actors, their schedules constantly change and that resilience is needed to make sure that he and Dewan are able to work and have equal time with their daughter.
Tatum added that it was difficult for the two of them to maneuver through these parameters without any aide and is the main reason why they started to become disoriented and started to have misunderstandings.
The report further explained that to avoid any more unnecessary conflict between the two of them moving forward, the actor believes that it is vital that they seek assistance from a parenting counselor and avoiding to make any changes in their custodial schedule as because they have not been successful thus far.
The actor had requested for him and Dewan to be able to travel within the United States with their daughter without the other party’s consent but would need approval if needed to travel outside America. Tatum also asked that he and Dewan be allowed to bring their daughter out from school for up to five days for a special occasion or a work-related trip.
Tatum also wants for him and his ex-wife to be able to equally divide or alternate the holidays and vacation time between them and to be able to video call their daughter every day.
The actor also wants him and Dewan to utilize the co-parenting website Our Family Wizard to share information regarding their daughter to each other like Everly’s safety, health, and education and has legally requested that the two of them cannot use their daughter’s name and likeness for any paid endeavor like sponsorships or ad campaigns without the other party’s consent.
Tatum and Dewan first met each other way back in 2006 while being on the set of Step Up where they played the two lead roles. The two got married on July of 2009 in Malibu, California.
Dewan is expecting her first child with actor-singer Steve Kazee. Tatum, who is now in a relationship with English singer-songwriter Jessie J broke up with Dewan in April of last year after almost nine years of marriage.
