Accusations of fraud in high asset reality TV divorce

Despite stalls in recent months, the high asset divorce between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries has again entered the spotlight with Kardashian's lawyer telling a judge that Humphries' actions have delayed proceedings.

The Kardashian clan is well known for their relationships. Khloe Kardashian, Kim's sister, is married to Lamar Odom, who played pro basketball for the Dallas Mavericks. That duo recently made clear their commitment to avoid divorce, but for other members of the family, a formal split is unavoidable.

Celebrity divorces, such as the one between Kardashian, a reality TV star, and Humphries, also a basketball player, can involve a host of confusing issues. From financial reviews to spousal maintenance to property division, a high asset divorce often requires specialized guidance.

In all states, including Texas, family law attorneys with prior experience in high asset cases can best provide this extra layer of direction. Even when couples are married for a relatively short amount of time, the complications of a high asset divorce can convolute the process considerably.

Kardashian and Humphries tied the knot in August 2011 in a lavish spectacle televised on the E! network, which also airs the Kardashian reality show.

The couple played out their differences in front of a national audience last fall, when both Kardashian and Humphries appeared on "Kourtney and Kim Take New York." During the final episode of that series, Kardashian hinted at a divorce; she filed on Halloween.

Humphries fired back with a request for an annulment, claiming fraud in the marriage. However, his attorneys have requested more time to gather evidence proving this assertion.

Due to the many competing factors involved, a high asset divorce can carry heavy emotional weight as well. Kardashian's lawyers accused Humphries of letting his personal feelings interfere with the progress of their split.
