Actress Lena Headey must return son to L.A. from U.K.

Florida television fans may be interested to learn that a California judge has ordered actress Lena Headey to return her 6-year-old son to Los Angeles from the U.K. The court ruled she violated a custody agreement by failing to notify her ex-husband of the child's enrollment in a British school.

Headey is currently filming the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" in the U.K. She reportedly placed her son in an English school because she believed it was superior to the one he was attending in California. However, her custody arrangement guarantees her ex can visit their son 10 days each month, and she allegedly failed to get permission from him for the boy to attend school overseas. The judge said Headey and her son can stay in England until she finishes filming "Game of Thrones." Until then, she must pay the travel expenses for her ex to visit their son in the U.K.

Earlier this year, Headey's ex-husband became angry when the actress moved to the U.K. with their son. However, she claims he gave permission for them to go. The former couple were married from 2007 to 2011.

Parents in a child custody dispute may benefit by consulting with a child custody law firm. An attorney could help negotiate a number of child custody agreements that are in the best interests of the child, including joint custody, sole custody, primary custody, parenting plans and more. If new life circumstances require an existing child custody agreement to be modified, an attorney could help file a petition with the family court.
