Reports that Elin will be awarded $100 million in money and property from Tiger as a result of their divorce settlement agreement have been circulating lately. News has also been circulating that Elin will get custody of the couple’s 2 children and will be allowed to relocate with them to Sweden.
When couples divorce, if custody of the children is contested, the Judge will look at one thing only to determine who gets custody of the children – the best interests of the children. Tiger and Elin’s divorce was not litigated in court, but was settled through mediation or some type of collaborative divorce settlement negotiations. But even in these cases, the attorneys for the parties are guided by courts’ standards because a Judge is still required to review and approve the terms of the couple’s agreement regarding child support and child custody.
Elin’s relocation to Sweden with the children appears to be unfair, but Tiger had to go along with it because it’s clear that she’s got him over a barrel. Although courts generally do not like to consider the sexual conduct of a parent in deciding custody, evidence that the parent’s sexual conduct would create a harmful environment for the children, would weigh heavily in the Judge’s determination concerning who gets custody.
