Angelina Jolie files for divorce

Divorce affects countless numbers of marriages in the Houston area each year. It affects people from all backgrounds, regardless of the number of years married. Angelina Jolie's surprise divorce announcement was all the news this past week, proving yet again that celebrities are not immune to divorces.

This past week the news outlets were full of stories regarding Angelina Jolie's surprise announcement of filing for divorce from Brad Pitt. The couple were married in August 2014 but have been together for 12 years. Jolie filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences and requesting sole physical child custody of their six children. Jolie is also requesting to keep various jewelry and any earning after the date of separation. It is estimated the couple has earned over 100 million since their 2014 wedding. It is not clear if the couple has a prenuptial agreement.

A divorce is one of the most traumatic events a couple can go through. In this period of strife and uncertainty, having a legal professional on your side is important. A family law attorney has the knowledge and skills to make sure their client emerges from the divorce with both feet on the ground. They are able to advise their client about what needs to be reviewed during a divorce so that nothing is missed. They can help their client make important decisions that affect their current situation and their future.

Although the end of a marriage can be sad, it can also signal a new start for a family. Making sure a divorce is handled properly is important which is why an attorney is an invaluable resource.
