Sometimes it seems like TV stars and producers live by a different set of rules than everyone else. That is until the long arm of the law steps into their lives. Time and again we have seen celebrities face the harsh realities of the criminal justice system, and the results can be just as severe as they are for the everyday criminal defendant. The same is true when a superstar couple gets divorced, because the issues in divorce cases are not different for celebrities than they are for anyone else who has filed to end their marriage. The Courts must decide the same things for both common people as they do for celebrities in divorce, such as child custody and support and division of the marital estate.
This type of situation was recently seen in the divorce of Modern Family creator Steven Levitan and his wife Krista. Levitan reportedly banks over $2 million per month, and Krista is asking the Court to award her spousal support as well as pay her attorney fees for the case. Some of the more interesting information being reported about this case includes the following:
- At first report of the filing, Levitan’s attorney said Krista’s filing was a mistake and that the case would not go forward. That turned out to be inaccurate, as the case is moving ahead.
- Krista recently filed documents in the case seeking to have Levitan barred from coming near the family home.
- In the request for the restraining order that would prohibit Levitan from going to the family home, Krista raises claims of abuse.
Not every divorce case has the same set of facts, and the above facts indicate that the Levitans could be in for a long legal battle. Regardless of the value of the estate, the salary of the parties or other special circumstance such as claims of abuse exist the best results are those that are fair and reasonable. Because all cases include a different set of fact, what is right for you may not be right for your neighbor or best friend.
