It is well-known that some divorces take longer than others. One celebrity couple that has been trying to settle their divorce for a year is now being thought to be rather at odds with one another over their divorce settlement still. Actors Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore have been working on an official dissolution for some time now, and have been separated from one another for a year. The actors have been married since 2005 and have suffered their share of tabloid rumors and reportedly are continuing to have difficulty moving on.
A lot of divorcing couples pride themselves in the fact that they are divorcing amicably. Ex-couples who have gotten past their anger and regret can be successful in securing swift and fair divorce settlements. But there's a difference in truly understanding the financial consequences and naively compromising on important issues.
It's not uncommon for ex-wives in Denver or anywhere across the country to receive a hefty sum in a divorce settlement. It's a bit less common for that settlement to be worth millions of dollars. And it's pretty rare, if not unheard of, for a settlement to reach the $100 million range. A recent case in Hong Kong is likely unprecedented.
An abusive marriage is tough enough. Many people endure domestic violence and stay in a marriage in the hopes of making it work. Many times, though the union doesn't last. So what do people do about their assets if such a marriage ends and ex-spouses continue abusive patterns?
It doesn't happen all the time, but once in a while a Colorado divorce judge might encounter some unusual issues when deciding how a couple's assets should be divided when they divorce. A recent case in Washington State is a perfect example.
