Child Custody: the focus of Tom and Katie's divorce settlement

Divorcing parents in Rhode Island will be interested to learn that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have reached a divorce settlement just 11 days after Holmes filed for divorce. There was little argument over the division of money, but custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri, was the focus of their legal battle.
