Understanding the divorce process can sometimes lead to a smoother divorce. Model, actress and singer Amber Rose, originally from Philadelphia, recently reached a divorce settlement with her rapper husband. Rose will receive $1 million in the divorce settlement according to the prenuptial agreement signed between the couple. Rose's ex-husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa, is reported to owe Rose $644,000 of the total $1 million divorce settlement he owes her. Khalifa will keep the couple's Pennsylvania home and a number of cars.
In addition, Rose will receive $14,800 a month in child support for the couple's 3-year old son. According to the divorce settlement, the couple will share custody of their son. There are a number of divorce legal issues that have to be resolved when a couple is divorcing. It may sometimes seem overwhelming to divorcing couples to have to decide on property division, spousal support, child support and child custody concerns. It may come as a relief to learn that the family law process provides resources and guidance to help couples reach a settlement agreement concerning all of these important issues.
Divorcing couples are encouraged to resolve divorce-related issues themselves whenever possible and may be able to agree concerning a number of issues. When they are unable to do so, the court can help resolve for the couple any divorce-related disputes that may arise. Divorce can be a painful and difficult process but understanding how divorce legal issues are addressed and resolved can help couples enjoy a more amicable divorce process that can save them acrimony, time and money.
The family law process provides flexibility for divorcing couples when needed but also provides guidelines to help couples resolve issues and concerns that commonly arise during the divorce process. From a prenuptial agreement to the final divorce settlement, family law resources help families with their unique needs and circumstances.
