After 17 years of marriage, the parents of pop star Miley Cyrus confirmed that they would be getting a divorce. An obvious question among family lawyers might now be, "Who gets custody of the children?"
People magazine reports that Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus filed for divorce earlier this week in their home state of Tennessee, citing irreconcilable differences. Their famous daughter Miley Cyrus will be turning 18 years old next month, so child custody of the pop singer might not be much of an issue. However, the parents have four other children together, which could turn into a legal issue in family court.
