Divorce doesn't have to be a long, drawn-out process.
Charlotte, North Carolina (PRWEB) July 22, 2012
Celebrity marriages are extremely different from “civilian” marriages – and though that’s no surprise to most people, the speed with which celebrities can divorce is almost shocking. There are several reasons celebrities are able to slice through red tape more quickly than the general population, and Charlotte divorce lawyer David Self delved into them in an exclusive interview with Lee Rosen, host of Divorce Talk Radio. Self also provided inside tips on speeding up any divorce during the twenty-minute podcast.
Like celebrity divorce, including Hollywood’s most recent split between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, ordinary divorces can be accomplished much more quickly than most people believe. While a two-week, in-and-out deal like the Cruise/Holmes divorce isn’t possible for everyone, nor is it allowed in some jurisdictions, divorce doesn’t have to be a long, drawn-out process, according to Self.
“They’re going to disclose documents, they should have the retirement [and] bank statements, all of that available so it can be provided to the other side… and then there’s (sic) going to be negotiations back and forth. One attorney will draft the paperwork and send that to the other attorney… and there’ll be, more than likely, counteroffers back and forth, and they’ll narrow the issues until they reach a resolution,” said Self when Rosen asked what it would take to get a divorce at celebrity speed.
Self suggested that people can speed up their own divorces by hashing out the emotional details during North Carolina’s yearlong waiting period before filing for divorce; once each party has agreed on touchy subjects, the case can make its way through court without encountering legal hitches. Rosen and Self also discussed the differences between ordinary divorces and high-asset celebrity divorces, like alimony, custody and child support issues.
Each week, Divorce Talk Radio host Lee Rosen invites both local and national professionals to discuss legal and financial issues that arise during divorce. Recent podcasts include “How to Convince Your Spouse to Collaborate” and “Do it Yourself Divorce.”
