Celebrity housewife splits from husband

On behalf of The Walters Law Group, Ltd. posted in Divorce on Wednesday, January 9, 2013.

In Chicago, we see plenty of divorce, but that doesn’t change the fact that each experience is unique bringing plenty of issues for all concerned. While most proceeding remain between the clients and their lawyers, some more high profile cases such as the divorce of the former celebrity housewife, Bethanny Frankel gets a little more attention. The model and television personality has filed for divorce from her husband of three years. The couple has a two year old daughter.

While many celebrity divorces can get complicated with custody disputes, property division, as well as child support and alimony considerations, many of these issues will be minimized due to the fact that Ms Frankel and her husband signed a prenuptial agreement before the marriage. These agreements help keep divorces amicable between the parties and less stressful for any children that might be involved.

Still, with or without a prenup there are almost always issues that come into play when the divorce is being filed — especially when there is a child involved and each member of the couple is less likely to remain living within close proximity to one another during the child’s entire lifetime. At times, additional court decisions need to be made about custody long after a divorce is final.

If you’re struggling with your marriage or have a custody arrangement with your spouse or ex-spouse that no longer seems to fit, it is important to talk to someone about what your options might be. Making the right choices, with the right support can make the entire process easier for everyone.
