Three Ways Your Divorce Could Be Worse

Getting divorced is never easy, even if you are still friends with your spouse. The emotions that go along with ending a marriage, the financial struggles that accompany separating one household into two, and the toll taken on kids during divorce is enough to make anyone throw up their hands for help. But even taking all of these things into account, it is possible to reach solutions that work and to move on with your life. The key is to focus on what matters the most to you and your family, and learn to compromise where necessary. We can help you by looking at your needs and the facts of your case, then providing aggressive representation that works.

And, if you need a little pick me up during the times when divorce seems too much to take, consider those that have it a bit harder. The world of celebrity is filled with spotlights, cameras, and little privacy. The fact that the entire world knows your personal business is enough, but in some cases the small details add up to giant heartache. Here are three ways your case could be worse, taken from some of the more talked about celebrity splits of last year:

• A short lived marriage, where one party makes the majority of the money can create feelings of resentment and add to the pressure to find quick solutions. This was seen in the divorce of Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting, with reports that Cuoco demanded Sweeting begin earning his own living.
• Starting a new relationship before the divorce is final can add to the emotional trauma that goes along with getting divorced. While this tactic may work for some, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are perfect examples; it is usually not advisable to jump into a new relationship too quickly.
• Stepping out with a new flame while trying to keep it under wraps from your spouse can also spell disaster for a marriage and make the divorce take a heated turn. This is what happened in the case of Hillary Duff and Mike Comrie, and also with Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick (although Kardashian and Disick are not technically married the pair do have kids together and have a long history of a tumultuous romantic coupling).

We offer these examples, not as a way of poking fun at others or making light of their experiences, but as a way to demonstrate the unique nature of each case. The things that work for you will not always work for the next person and by the same token the things that cause you trauma will not necessarily lead to the same result for a friend. We understand the little nuances of each case and look for solutions that take your specific facts into consideration. If you are thinking about divorce but have questions about certain things, call us to learn the answers. Together we will develop a strategy that fits the facts and meets your needs.

One Way To Fix A Marriage Mistake

It is no secret that marriage is hard, and when tough times arise a couple can either find ways to reconcile their differences or move on from one another. This is usually done through separation or divorce, and in many instances can be kept private. But if you are a celebrity and constantly in the spotlight, all of your actions are subject to public scrutiny, including your mistakes. This can make it hard to focus on what needs doing when going through a divorce, and some celebrities o handle the added media attention in a way that makes fixing a marriage mistake a little easier.

One example of a celebrity that has been able to laugh at herself and find creative ways to make the mistakes she made in her marriage less stressful is Kaley Cuoco. The star recently opened up to Ellen DeGeneres, and had this to say about her split from Ryan Sweeting:

  • The actress is in a good emotional place, and moving on with her life.
  • A large moth tattoo now covers up a tattoo mistake Cuoco got when she married Sweeting, which was a tattoo of the pair’s wedding date.
