The Summer of 2015 seemed to be the summer of celebrity splits. With so many celebrities calling it quits, it is easy to see how hard marriage can be and that sometimes the answer is divorce. Couples decide to end their marriage for a number of reasons, from infidelity to simply growing apart. Whatever the reason, if you are thinking about filing for divorce you need to take special care to protect your interests and those of your children. Our job is to fight for fair results, while making sure those results meets your needs.
Celebrity couples have these same concerns, as well as finding the right time to make the news public, and how to divide large estates. Newsday has a good run down of which star couples split up or filed for divorce this year, take a look:
- Jon Hamm and his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt ended an 18 year long relationship in 2015.
- The music world was rocked by the split of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, and Blake’s occasional The Voice co-host Gwen Stefani from musician husband Gavin Rossdale.
- Dr. McDreamy, aka Patrick Dempsey, and his wife Jillian Fink filed for divorce this year.
- The world of sports and acting collided, then fell apart when Jason Sehorn and Angie Harmon decided to dissolve their marriage. You can also add Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie to this list.
In some cases the decision to file for divorce is made quickly, and in other cases it takes some time to sort through the emotions and other issues that go along with ending a marriage. In the case of actors David Duchovny and Tea Leoni, this decision was not made for three years following the couple’s separation. In the world of celebrities it is not uncommon for the announcement to be well-timed, but three years is a bit out of the ordinary and shows that divorce is a real life event, regardless of certain characteristics of your life. Our approach is to take the unique circumstances of your case into account when working towards solutions, and keep you involved every step of the way.
