Divorce is never envisaged when you enter into your marriage, if it was we probably wouldn’t do it!
Sadly multiple divorces have become more and more common, it is a sad fact that many people have experienced a failed first marriage and whilst the breakdown and subsequent experiences would have been difficult, when entering into the second, third or fourth marriage it is likely that its even more unexpected and difficult if it breaks down.
Cheryl Cole, Billie Piper, Tom Cruise, Madonna, Drew Barrymore, to name just a few of the celebrity divorcees.
There are so many things to think about when divorcing; how the matrimonial assets will be split and even when you’re not considering the multi million pound pots the celebrities have to consider there is still the family home be it rented or owned, the sole and joint assets as well as any businesses and pensions. When looking at finances there are a number of considerations and legal advice should be obtained, in order to give the best advice it will be necessary to enter into full and frank disclosure of all assets, income and liabilities. The starting point for division is 50/50, however, there are a number of factors to be looked and the 50/50 split can be departed from.
It would be wise to consider entering into a pre-nuptial agreement before embarking on the next marriage, whilst it may not be something that you want to think about when planning the big day, those who have been through a Divorce before will know that no matter how happy you are at the start a break up is always possible.
When separating there is also the children to think about, who they will live and when they will spend time with the other parent. It is important to protect them from the distress of the separation and to ensure that they don’t get caught up in any conflict.
