Ever since they announced their divorce plans a little over a year ago, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have tried to keep their private lives away from the public eye as much as they can. Of course, due to their fame and celebrity, that is a difficult task. The topic has come up numerous times in multiple different settings, but they have respectfully kept the discussion between the parties involved. While admitting that it is a hard subject, they seem to respect one another, and raising their child, Jack Pratt (6) together. But now that the divorce is finalized, they have come to a few agreements.
According to TMZ, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt are officially separated, but they won't be far from one another. After meeting with a private judge on Wednesday, the former celebrity couple decided to live no further than five miles apart from each other -- at least, for the next five years. This court agreement is in the best interest of their son, Jack Pratt. Faris and Pratt want to live near Jack until he is at least finished with sixth grade. They are hoping to have a close relationship with their son by the time he's 12. While Pratt is super busy as a film star, he seemingly wants to be a good parent.
Furthermore, should Anna Faris or Chris Pratt want to relocate or move beyond the agreed five-mile distance, they need to have the written consent of the other parent no later than three months in advance of the move. And if they plan to be out of the country with Jack Pratt, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris need to let the other parent know at least 30 days in advance. When it comes to taking Jack Pratt out of the state, each parent expects to have a fairly "reasonable" advance notice, therein by letting the other parent know about the travel plans of their son -- even if they're no longer a romantic couple.
As far as legalities go, these requests are fairly mundane. But they suggest that Anna Faris and Chris Pratt want to remain firmly committed parents, despite the swift change in their lives. They're hoping to raise their child as best they can -- despite the divorce settlements coming into play right now. It's never easy to raise a child, especially when divorce is involved. And most especially when the divorcing parents are extremely famous film/TV stars. But they are trying to be responsible and level-headed about the whole matter, and it's understandable that they want their child to be the main focus.
And that tradition was found last week on Halloween, as Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were reportedly seen together with their child doing some trick-or-treating rounds. So, we are glad to know things are going well for the A-list one-time couple -- even as the divorce plans have been officially firmed up.
