Some of our readers may begin to wonder if anyone in the limelight is going to stay hitched this year. This has certainly been the summer of celebrity divorces. Some of the most poignant are listed below:
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert: This was one of country music’s golden couples. The two, however, divorced with very little controversy — thanks in part to a prenuptial agreement.
Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock. After 26 years of marriage, Reba announced that her marriage was over.
Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog: Have we come so far as to think this is funny? After 40 years together, this Hollywood couple revealed their split.
At Weinstein, Kaplan & Cohen, P.C., we know that divorce is anything but funny. We see families torn apart by separation every day. However, you’ll find that the attorneys and staff at Weinstein, Kaplan & Cohen, P.C., are compassionate as well as knowledgeable and experienced. We listen to our clients’ needs and we work diligently to protect their rights and interests as the divorce proceeds through the Nassau County courts.
When children are involved, the parties involved often both feel as though each one is better suited to have custody. We know the judge will determine whom he believes should have custody based upon the best interests of the child. We will present your side to the court so he will understand your views on child custody.
Child support is also a touchy issue. Even though a formula is available to suggest the monthly child support payments, the court has the discretion to raise or lower the suggested amount. We will present financial evidence as to why you should receive a higher amount or why you shouldn’t have to pay the higher amount, depending which side of the case you are on.
When it comes to property division, we understand that you want what you rightfully deserve. We will fight for you and your assets, enlisting the help of financial planners and other experts to testify if necessary.
