Pop and soul singer Stevie Wonder has finalized his divorce from his second wife. This marks yet another celebrity who has dissolved (or began dissolution proceedings) their marriage over the span of about a 6 month time period in 2015. This case gives us another glimpse into how high profile and high net worth divorce cases work, and while not everyone is a superstar, the issues stars face when getting divorced are the same issues our office handles on a daily basis.
Reports detail some of the issues resolved in the matter, including:
- Custody of the children will be shared.
- The singer will pay $25,000.00 per month in child support for the two minor children born of the marriage.
- It was also reported that the singer signed the final documents with a thumbprint rather than a written signature.
While these topics were certainly important to the couple, as the care and well-being of children is generally the top priority in any case, other significant issues also exist. For instance, division of property, how to interpret any prenuptial agreement (if one existed), and how any marital debt will be repaid. These issues exist in every day cases too, and require thoughtful analysis. Every case is different, so the evidence used depends on the facts of the matter. Our experienced attorneys are trained to aggressively protect your interests, while working towards resolutions that work. Our approach is to review all of the information you provide and give you our opinion on possible outcomes, always keeping your needs in mind. We work with you to develop a strategy that fits the facts of your case, so the results will meet your needs. Perhaps you have a child with special needs or there are significant assets in your marital estate; if so, our approach takes into account the unique nature of your case so the things that matter to you the most are not overlooked. Or, maybe circumstances exist that gives rise to the need for supervised visitation or sole custody of your kids.
