In recent news, celebrities are opting out of their marriages left and right. Katy Perry, Kobe Bryant, Zooey Deschanel and Kenny G are just some of the people that have recently headlined the news. As Rhode Island residents know, no one really wants to go through the tribulations of divorce proceedings; nevertheless, another well-known celebrity couple has decided to end their marriage.
Model and television personality, Heidi Klum, is splitting from her husband of seven years, Seal, the famous musician. According to reports, Seal feels that his wife has been too concerned with her career, specifically Klum's television projects. Klum is well-known for her hit television show, "Project Runway." On the other hand, Klum complains of Seal's partying habits when he is on the road touring.
Throughout the process of divorce, one must deal with various financial and legal quandaries. Furthermore, resolutions involving children can also be extremely complex. Many divorces involve custody and visitation disputes over the kids. Seal and Klum are parents to three children, and Klum also has a daughter from an earlier relationship. The couple has issued a statement regarding their family: "This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition."
It appears as though the singer and model are taking a cooperative approach to their separation. Nevertheless, this is not always the case. The process can be overwhelming for you and your family. If you are confronting a recent divorce or separation, perhaps you want to speak to an attorney about your legal and financial options.
