Lake County, Illinois, couples who are in the middle of a divorce or are even planning to get a divorce often face complications because of the various details that are involved in separating. A divorce is not only a legal proceeding, but it also includes complicated legal issues and financial and emotional issues regarding child custody, alimony or child support.
Additionally, a couple that has been married for a long time and has shared a home and income faces the problem of property division, which is often difficult because it may feel like the last straw. Thus, in most cases, a couple may decide to consult a divorce attorney to ensure that the separation is as amicable and hassle-free as possible.
Recently, actress Megan Fox filed for divorce from her husband, actor Brian Austin Green. The couple had been together for nearly 11 years and were married for more than five years. The couple also has two young sons together. Fox has also filed for joint custody of their minor children. The couple has a large amount of wealth between the two of them, which the court will examine in order to determine which assets can be divided in the divorce settlement. The couple did not have a prenuptial agreement in place.
Celebrity couples who have lived most of their career in the media spotlight often have the added disadvantage of having their divorce proceeding publicized by the media, which often makes it more stressful. Furthermore, celebrities often have a lot more wealth than the average person, and the valuation of their bank accounts and their shared properties may run into millions. Such a separation can complicate the legal issues, which can cause many celebrity couples to wish to consult an attorney, who can help them to resolve their problems, especially when they have a prenuptial agreement in place.
