Ex-gov. agrees to temporary joint custody

April 27, 2007 at 10:58 PM   |   Comments

ELIZABETH, N.J., April 27 (UPI) -- Former New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey, who resigned after announcing he is gay, Friday agreed with his wife to share custody of their daughter.

McGreevey and Dina Matos McGreevey were at a hearing in Union County, where a judge said they have consented to a "parental mediator" to help them make decisions about their daughter, Jacqueline. The joint custody will continue at least until their divorce becomes final.

The split has been a nasty one, featuring dueling books -- Mrs. McGreevey's is due out soon -- and the former governor's application for sole custody. Mrs. McGreevey only learned of her husband's sexual orientation shortly before it became public knowledge in 2004.

Judge Karen Cassidy told the couple she has 600 cases on her docket, and they will have to wait their turn in line.
