Holly Marie Combs files for divorce, seeks joint custody

On Behalf of | Dec 1, 2011 | High-Asset Divorce

Many Ohio residents are familiar with the actress Holly Marie Combs and her work. While the actress has appeared in many venues and is currently starring on the television show “Pretty Little Liars,” she is probably best known for her role in the long-running series “Charmed.” It is being reported that she now plans to divorce her husband.

Combs and her husband have been married for seven years. The actress cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce. The couple has three children, ages 7, 5 and 2, and Combs is seeking joint custody as part of her divorce filing.

According to news reports, the couple does not have a prenuptial agreement, meaning that the process of coming to a settlement could take longer. It also means the actress could stand to lose a significant amount of money that she made from the success of “Charmed.”

In any type of high-asset divorce, many issues have to be considered. This is true for Ohio residents just as much as it is true for famous Hollywood stars. Issues such as division of assets are all subject to scrutiny when couples decide that divorce is in their best interests.

Because these issues can get complicated when couples are seeking a settlement, they will often turn to professional legal assistance.  As Combs is also seeking joint custody of their three children, it is likely that she is using an attorney to represent her side of the case.
