As we've briefly discussed before, Katie Holmes will make her court debut when she goes before the judge on July 17!
Katie will request temporary child support from Tom Cruise. But Tom's team will also be there, ready to petition a temporary visitation order.
Katie's prepared for that, though, with sources saying:
"Katie's legal team will be requesting temporary child support to cover living expenses and the added security she has hired since her split from Tom. Tom's Los Angeles lawyers have officially been given notice. Tom's New York lawyer will appear and it's undetermined at this time if Tom will be in court also because he is currently shooting a movie. His lawyer could also petition the judge for a temporary visitation order at that time. Katie will be in court and ready to testify at the hearing if needed."
And since Katie's been planning this for a while, she already has a huge advantage over Tom's legal team.
We'd bet everything goes in her favor… but then again, you can't mess with the power of
Xenu Cruise too much! Ha! ;)
