Not all marriages are meant to last, and in these days it is not uncommon to hear of celebrity divorces. Of course, any couple, whether they are famous or not, may one day find that it is best to end their marriage. Even so, individuals in Kentucky may find the following story on one high asset divorce interesting.
For the second time, a famous actress and billionaire are ending their marriage. The couple had married for the first time in 2010 but divorced two years later. They then married for a second time a year and a half later. Nonetheless, the actress has recently filed for divorce from her billionaire husband. Her billionaire husband had previously filed for divorce on December 31, 2014, but after seven months the petition for divorce was withdrawn.
The marriage had lasted for two years and six months. The husband and wife have resided separately for the previous six months. They describe their divorce as "amicable." Still, the actress is pursuing alimony from her billionaire husband. The couple do not have children together although the billionaire has five children from a prior marriage. It has not been reported whether or not there is a prenuptial agreement in place.
While it may be possible for married couples to divorce amicably, the fact is that a high asset divorce can come with many complications. For example, individuals with high net worth may have a significant amount of financial accounts, business assets, stocks, investments, real estate and retirement portfolios. It is important that these assets are properly accounted for and fairly split. Wealthy individuals going through a divorce may want to seek the right help to make sure their divorce goes smoothly.
