Madonna and Rocco have been pictured enjoying time together following a bitter dispute in the English courts concerning who Rocco should live with.

Rocco had been living with his mother since 2008, in New York, following Madonna's divorce from Guy Ritchie.  

In December last year he visited his father in London and decided to stay with him.  This prompted Madonna to make an application under the Hague Convention, which deals with the abduction of children, for Rocco to be returned to New York. 

However, Madonna has since halted those proceedings.   Mr Justice MacDonald had previously told the couple in Court it would be better if both spent time with Rocco. 

Further court hearings are expected to be held in New York, later in the year.

Arrangements for children, including who the child should live with following a divorce, can be difficult to agree and it's an aspect our family team are specialised in helping with.
