Kim Kardashian may win full custody of her and Kanye West’s four children throughout their divorce.
The 45-year-old musician skipped his November 16 deposition, according to legal experts.
Rachel Fiset, managing partner of Zweiback, Fiset & Zalduendo LLP, said avoiding a deposition in a lawsuit is taken seriously, especially if it’s a repeat offence.
West will appear in court again on November 29 before a two-day trial on December 14.
Kim, 42, might be granted full custody of her kids: North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.
Family law attorney Lexie Rigden told the publication, “If Kanye refuses to show up to his deposition, the judge could discipline him monetarily, make him pay counsel fees, and if it’s a significant enough discovery breach, the judge may ban him from putting on a case at trial.”
For two wealthy people who don’t need each other’s money, custody will be most crucial, she said.
In most divorces, the parties can resolve certain difficulties, said Rigden. Given his actions and seeming unreasonableness, custody and asset allocation may be in issue.
After seven years of marriage, the couple is dividing their $2 billion in assets.
Ye’s sixth lawyer is Nicholas Salick, while Kardashian’s is Laura Wasser.
