Ohio residents hear about celebrity divorces almost every day. They are splashed across the covers of gossip magazines and tabloids in the grocery store checkout aisles, and even major TV news stations report on the high-profile splits. When people think of a high-asset divorce, often images of bitter disputes over millions in assets come to mind. The divorce process is drawn out, sometimes over years, as people work tirelessly to take money from each other. Rarely do we hear about a celebrity divorce in which things actually go smoothly and quickly.
A high-asset divorce can often be complicated to resolve. The time must be taken to accurately report all assets owed by both spouses before anything can be divided. Such assets can take many forms, including property, stocks, bonds and cash. In Ohio as well as other places, the general rule is that in a divorce, marital property will be split equally between both spouses.
Twenty million dollars. That is how much Russell Brand is set to receive in his high-asset divorce from pop princess Katy Perry, according to recent reports. Brand, 36, apparently filed for divorce on Dec. 30 after 14 months of marriage.
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.
Many Ohio residents are probably of the opinion that a lot of Hollywood marriages won't last for very long, for one reason or another. However, the marriage between reality TV star Kim Kardashian and professional basketball player Kris Humphries would seem to be abnormally short, even by Hollywood standards. After only 10 weeks of marriage Kardashian filed for divorce.
Divorce is often a nasty business, but when it comes to the division of assets, stress levels can multiply. For some reason, when couples involved in a divorce face the division of money and belongings, things become more heated. Couples in Ohio who are facing the same circumstances may find comfort in the fact that they're not alone. A Peoria, Illinois, Fifth District City Councilman is currently engaged in a bitter divorce and is struggling with the division of his and his estranged wife's financial assets.
Spousal support and parties' attempts at modifying it are often the cause of much contention in high asset divorce cases here in Ohio and across the country. Take the case of Frank McCourt, owner (at least for now) of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He and his wife are in the midst of a bitter divorce that has impacted the couple, the Dodgers baseball team, and even Major League Baseball.
