These celebrity fluff pieces are always interesting but there are aspects of a celebrity divorce that can apply to almost any divorce particular those divorces involving significant assets, family businesses or special private concerns. From this article 4 and 5 are particularly relevant. Not EVERYTHING has to be in a publicly accessible Settlement Agreement and the use of a private judge has recently been endorsed by Alabama legislature giving litigants who feel they need their day in court more control over that day than in the typical divorce scenario. ‪#‎divorce‬

The divorce process sometimes requires that a client look inwardly not only at their now unraveling marital relationship but, also at their relationships with any number of people including their own lawyer. The most important. The MOST important. Let me say this again. The most IMPORTANT characteristic that you as a client in a divorce case must look for when choosing among otherwise well credentialed, experienced and capable attorneys is someone who is a good fit by way of personality and communication. #divorce   #divorceattorney

People are always fascinated when those in the spotlight choose to call it quits. Even more interesting is when a long term marriage hits the rocks without fanfare. People want so badly to fill in the gaps like in the recent divorce filing by Alabama's First Lady and many read too much into what is a standard almost form divorce filing. ‪#‎divorce‬

Interesting article.  I would add that in my experience as a divorce lawyer an inability to forgive AND forget coupled with an inability to hold your relationship above personal gains or "wins" are also nails in the coffin of a marriage. #divorce

In my experience of late finances do not play a key role near as often as a lack of intimacy or misplaced intimacy initiated, discovered or fueled by social media.   #divorce

Divorce and general family discord over the holidays can be tough and take it's toll on a family.  So much so that there is generally a spike in divorce filings as soon as the holiday season ends.  Not to mention the increase in filings related to child custody and visitation that take place as a result of interference with those rights over the holiday and the stress and hard feelings that follow.  #divorce #childcustody #visitationrights
