TERESA LOYZAGA WINS OLDEST
Pasig City, April 1, 1999 - Singer-actress Teresa Loyzaga has won custody of her child by her former husband, Arnold Dizon. The Pasig Regional Trial Court ruled that 10-year-old Charles Joseph should stay weekdays with Teresa and spend Saturdays and Sundays with his father.
In his one page decision, Judge Pablito Rojas ordered Teresa and Arnold to give equal support of P7,500 a month each to their son.
The custody battle was initiated by Dizon, who told the court that he had been deprived of visitation rights to his son for the last 8 months, after Teresa disregarded a previous custody arrangement.
Dizon had asked for full custody of his son, arguing that Teresa could not be a good mother because of her extra-marital affairs, mainly with actor Cesar Montano, father of Teresa's son Diego.
Teresa and Arnold sought an annulment in 1995. At that time, both admitted to "psychological incapacity," with Teresa also claiming that her husband suffered from "chronic, inappropriate clinging to his parents."
