Madonna and Guy Ritchie urged to resolve teen son's custody case

New York - Madonna and Guy Ritchie seem unable to come up with a solution to resolve a custody dispute over their teenage son and a New York judge is ready to intervene.  

During a proceeding in Manhattan on Wednesday, state Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kaplan implored the divorced singer and film director to settle the matter.

At issue is with whom their 15-year-old son, Rocco Ritchie, should be living. His court-appointed attorney says the teenager is stressed by the uncertainty of the case.

According to TMZ, Rocco is currently enrolled in a school in London. Both the judge and Rocco’s attorney agree this is best for him and that he shouldn’t be removed from the school.

Lawyers for both sides said a potential agreement reached late Tuesday had fallen apart.

Kaplan ruled in December that Rocco return to his mother's custody after he left her worldwide tour to stay with Ritchie in London. Records show Madonna has moved for the judge to enforce that order.

It’s also reported that all this uncertainty is hurting the boy and although the judge won’t force him to move back to New York with his mother, the judge is urging Madonna and Guy to reach an "amicable resolution to visitation issues’"– and fast.

Both parents are abroad and called in to the New York proceeding Wednesday.
