Frances Bean Cobain files for divorce

To some Texas residents it may seem like every week there is another report of a celebrity divorce. This week is no different as Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of legendary rocker Kurt Cobain, is reportedly in a divorce from her husband.

This past week Frances Bean Cobain announced that she has filed for divorce from Isaiah Silva whom she has been married to for less than two years, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple was married in June of 2014. People magazine reports that Cobain is open to paying spousal support but none of her late father's estate which is valued at $450 million will be given to him. The divorce filings have indicated that Cobain is asking the court to not include premarital assets, which include her father's inheritance, to be included in the settlement.

Celebrity divorce cases, as with all other divorce cases, can offer valuable insight. France Bean Cobain's divorce is a reminder that premarital assets can be kept separate from marital assets in some cases.

Many times when a couple is married each person brings to the marriage different assets and debts. In a divorce settlement these assets and debts can be complicated and result in a dispute. A legal professional skilled in family law can help their client negotiate a divorce settlement that makes sense for their situation. They have experience in premarital assets and how they can affect a divorce settlement if a prenuptial agreement was not created. They can make sure their client's best interests are protected and that they are able to start afresh after the divorce is finalized.
