It’s a wrap.

In the basement of the Daley Center, without the Grammy-wining celebrity present, lawyers for Chance the Rapper and the mother of his toddler daughter Monday signed off on a legal agreement that ends a prolonged tussle over child support.

Lawyers for both sides were effusive in their praise for how Chance and the mother, Kirsten Corley, came to an agreement.

Enrico Mirabelli, Corley’s attorney, said the couple “put their child first.”

“Really, that’s the way it should be done,” Mirabelli said. “And when you settle between yourselves, you leave nothing to chance.”

Tanya Stanish, one of Chance’s attorneys, said: “The parties have reached a full agreement. The case is concluded. I’m going to give major credit to Chance and Kirsten for working together to reach a deal that’s fair for their daughter, fair for them both.”

Corley and her daughter have been living with Chance, but both parents agree that it’s in the child’s best interests if they live separately, according to recent documents filed in the case.

Without disclosing details, Mirabelli said his client — born and raised in Chicago — plans to continue to live in the city.

Stanish said the agreement reached Monday means, there will be “substantial parenting time for both” parents.

Corley had been seeking temporary child support that would pay for, among other things, a furnished home for her and the daughter as well as a car to transport the child.

Attorneys for both sides had said last week that the parties agreed to keep some documents in the case confidential, and were close to an amicable settlement.
