Channing Tatum has asked a Los Angeles judge to change the custody agreement he and his ex-wife Jenna Dewan have in place for their daughter Everly Elizabeth Maiselle Tatum.
Tatum wants to have an official custody schedule in place for their daughter so she has a structured and regular life with both of her parents.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Tatum wants to establish a custody schedule for their daughter. He wants to have custody on Mondays and Tuesday while Dewan will take over on Wednesday and Thursday. Then the couple will alternate on the weekends.
The court document then states that both parties will get two weeks of solo time with Everly when she is on summer vacation. The newly single father is also proposing they split up Christmas Eve and Christmas Day evenly with Tatum getting the odd years and Dewan getting the even years. He then proposes the opposite for New Year’s Day.
For Everly’s birthday, Tatum wants them to split the day evenly if there is no joint birthday party organized for the day. For Halloween, they will try and spend the night together so Everly can go trick or treating with both of her parents.
He then suggests that Everly can travel anywhere in the U.S. with one parent without needing permission from the other parent. This is because both of their families live outside of California. But if either of them wants to travel outside of the U.S. they will need permission from the other parent.
“In my opinion and experience,” Tatum wrote in the documents. “Everly has appeared to adjust to our separation and living in two homes exceptionally well. I believe that she will thrive even more with structure and consistency because she is happy and more relaxed when she knows a plan.”
He then goes into detail about how he has changed his schedule and life to accommodate his daughter and their new situation.
