As Chicago residents know, there are a variety of issues that must be settled during a divorce. The process can be lengthy, especially for couples with high-value assets. One former celebrity couple knows this all too well.
The divorce saga between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries continues. Despite the reality television star and basketball player only being married for 72 days, the couple’s divorce has dragged on for more than a year and a half.
Because the former pair cannot settle their differences, their divorce will be settled in court in a trial that is set to begin in May. Humphries claims that Kardashian did not intend to remain married and has requested an annulment.
The couple’s wedding was broadcast on TV. However, Kardashian filed for divorce less than three months later, citing irreconcilable differences.
Kardashian and Humphries situation is unique. Celebrities often try to settle their divorces out of court and out of the public eye.
The joy that couples experience on their wedding day can be short-lived. Couples in Chicago and beyond may have planned to grow old together. However, they may come to realize that they want different things in life. Although it can be a difficult decision to make, pursing a divorce may be the best choice for everyone involved.
Whether you have been married for a matter of days or many years, going through a divorce can be difficult. Because of the strong bond between married couples, people may experience strong emotions during and after a divorce. Relying on an experienced family law attorney is usually a wise choice.
