Some California couples can relate to being married, getting divorced, then reuniting with their former spouses, only to wind up in divorce court again some years later. That's basically what happened between superstar actor Robert De Niro and his estranged wife (for the second time) Grace Hightower. The two are currently battling over marital assets in a high-net worth divorce, including custody issues regarding their youngest child.
Many music lovers in California and worldwide count Adele as one of their favorite artists. A recent announcement that she is headed for a high-net worth divorce prompted many fans to post their thoughts on social media. Some have said they believe the singer's personal life will likely spark a new album and may ultimately add to her $180 million net worth.
Most California residents have shopped on Amazon at one time or other. However, many may not know that the founder of the company, Jeff Bezos, is preparing for high-net worth divorce proceedings. As the richest man in the world, he reportedly has many issues to resolve, especially the 16 percent of shares he owns in the company he created and in which he acts as the current CEO.
No one can predict which California marriages will last a lifetime and which will not. A recent study, however, suggests that wealthy people might be more likely to end their marriages in court than those of lesser means. High-net worth divorce is often complex, so if that's true, spouses who are considering filing divorce papers may want to act alongside experienced legal support.
Living with a spouse with whom you are no longer in love can be an exhausting and painful emotional challenge. Enduring years of an unhappy marriage can even feel unbearable. Some couples choose to divorce after a few short months of marriage; other people remain married for decades before parting.
