Celebrity divorces often make national headlines, but these stories constitute a very small portion of divorce cases. In fact, according to the American Psychological Association, 40 percent to 50 percent of Americans will eventually divorce. The divorce rate for second marriages is even higher.
No matter how amicable the divorce process may be, there’s always some degree of stress when a marriage ends. Alimony, child custody, property division—the list of life-altering considerations goes on.
If you are facing divorce or are thinking about ending your marriage, consider discussing your case with an experienced divorce lawyer.

Recent Updates on the Clint Eastwood Divorce
MStar News reports that movie star and director Clint Eastwood is close to finalizing his divorce. According to sources, the actor separated from his wife in 2012, a full year before Dina Eastwood officially filed for divorce. Now, it appears that both parties have come to an agreement and will be finalizing proceedings shortly.
Judge Susan Matcham recently signed the papers. She stated that both parties are now single individuals once again, and the law recognizes them as such.
The divorce took a while to finalize due to an argument regarding custody of their teenage daughter. The two also struggled to reach an agreement about Eastwood’s sizeable fortune. Meanwhile, insiders say Clint Eastwood already has a new girlfriend, though the details of this relationship are unconfirmed.
Khloe Kardashian Blames Herself for Rushing Into a Failed Relationship
The Independent reports that Khloe Kardashian claims she was lonely and destructive when she rushed into her most recent relationship. She now says she wishes she had waited longer and needs some time alone to find herself once again.
The reality television star has been dating rapper French Montana while she waits for her divorce proceedings with Lamar Odom to complete. People close to her have confirmed that she was devastated after her divorce and that she needs time to grieve this relationship before commencing a new one.
Odom has yet to respond to Kardashian’s divorce petition. The courts will dismiss the petition if he has not responded within 45 days, at which point Kardashian can file a default judgment in his absence.
Celebrity divorces are somewhat different than the majority of cases—mostly because of their sizeable fortunes. However, every divorcing couple faces the stressors of ending a marriage and trying to understand the complex laws that the process involves. An experienced attorney can help you here.
