High profile divorces are not that different from other divorces

In cases of divorce, there are a number of issues that must be addressed. Deciding to get a divorce is really just the first step in a long process. The process may at times seem tedious and exasperating, but it is a necessary process to ensure that the people involved in the divorce are getting what they deserve and are protected. The courts that handle divorce proceedings follow guidelines established by state law.

Divorce is a matter of state, not federal, law. In Michigan as in other states, laws specific to divorce tell the courts what information the parties must disclose during a divorce. With respect to the law, high profile, high asset divorces are treated just like any other divorce.

For example, Ashton Kutcher, a well-known actor, recently filed for divorce from fellow actor Demi Moore, citing irreconcilable differences. Kutcher is not seeking spousal support, and he is not standing in the way of Moore seeking spousal support.

The parties to this and any other high profile divorce will have to go through the same legal process as in any other divorce. For instance, the parties will have to disclose all assets to each other. If they are unable to come to an agreement as to how the assets will be divided, the court will make the division. Additionally, the parties or the court will have to decide whether either spouse should receive spousal support, also known as alimony. If the couple has children, they will have to resolve child custody, visitation and child support issues

Divorces can be messy and drawn out, but they do not have to be. Inevitably, divorces are painful to go through but this pain may be mitigated if the parties to the divorce are able to resolve the issues amicably.
