Minnesota residents who follow the lives of celebrities may be interested in news about a former celebrity couple. Actress Kate Hudson and her ex-husband Chris Robinson are going to court to have their child custody agreement reevaluated. The request for the reevaluation came from Robinson, and Hudson will have to pay the bill for it.

The couple were married in 2000 and divorced in 2007 after having separated a year earlier. They had a son, Ryder, in 2004. According to reports, the evaluation will consider the couple’s current joint custody arrangement and determine the best living situation for 13-year-old Ryder.Hudson and Robinson each have other children in addition to Ryder. Hudson has a 5-year-old son with a former fiancé, and Robinson, of the rock group The Black Crowes, has a daughter with his current wife.

Hudson has been ordered to pay for the custody evaluation for Ryder, and that payment includes a $7500 deposit. She and Robinson will both take part in the interviews for the evaluation as well as psychological, drug or alcohol testing if the court decides to perform these tests. Hudson and Robinson have both given the court access to their health and medical records.

An original child custody order agreement is rarely set in stone. Either parent can request a reevaluation of it at any time. When it comes to paying for the reevaluation, each parent may be required to pay, or the judge may order one parent to pay, as is the case in the reevaluation for Hudson and Robinson. A judge’s decision may be dependent on each parent’s ability to pay.
