Americans have a love affair with celebrities. We can’t get enough of them. Whether it is television, radio, the Internet or the tabloids at the supermarket checkout line, it is almost impossible to avoid hearing about the comings and goings of the Kardashians, Kanye West or who Taylor Swift is dating. There was a time when Entertainment Tonight was the only place on TV to get celebrity news. But now even the mainstream media devotes significant airtime to the everyday affairs of people in Hollywood. As the year comes to an end, one word has dominated the headlines concerning celebrities–divorce. Altogether, sixteen high-profile couples have called it quits. Proving once and for all that when it comes to love and marriage in Hollywood, 2016 has been a tumultuous year.

The Heavy Price of Celebrity Divorce
Regardless of whether two famous people are splitting up or an average couple is filing for divorce in Salt Lake City, the breakup of a marriage can bring severe consequences. Assets and property must be divided. Child custody and visitation rights must be determined. To get the best results, it is highly important to seek representation from an experienced divorce attorney. Unlike most couples, celebrity divorce often comes with the glare of the spotlight. Many are constantly followed around by the paparazzi. Each move and spoken word is scrutinized by the media. In other words, there is very little margin for error. The same media that can create a celebrity’s glamorous image can quickly tear it down. There is indeed much to lose.
How a Divorce Attorney Can Help
Very few people are completely prepared for divorce. Even those who have prepared a prenuptial agreement, may not be able to deal with the emotional pain that comes with a breakup. Remember, celebrities are human too. Not all divorce lawyers are the same. Many simply care about protecting the best interest of the client during a divorce. But what often separates the good divorce attorneys from the average is helping the client prepare for life after divorce. No matter how much money you earn, there will be huge life adjustments–especially if you have children.
