Kardashian-Humphries divorce to enter settlement discussion

Making the decision to get a divorce is a difficult one for most people. Not only does divorce mean separating from one's once thought lifetime partner, but it also means an upcoming complicated series of questions to answer having to do with property division, alimony, child support and more. When a high asset divorce is involved, these issues can be even more difficult. High asset divorces often mean separating large amounts of property, stocks, retirement plans, and vehicles.

Experts claim Viagra increases likelihood of divorce

High asset Hamm divorce could result in 50/50 split

Any divorce can involve difficult examinations into a couple's life in order to determine property division. California is a community property state which means that most property acquired during the marriage is split evenly among the two in divorce. A similar product often results in equitable division of property states, where marital property is split in a way that leaves both couples in a similar financial position as the other, post-divorce. These property division concepts are now playing directly into oil baron billionaire, Harold Hamm's, divorce.

Supreme Court decision could greatly impact same-sex marriage

A lot is on the line for the state of California given the recent Supreme Court hearings on Proposition 8 and DOMA. Many Legal experts anticipate that depending on the decision of the Court, the ruling could heavily impact same-sex marriage. When it comes to divorce, state and federal law on same-sex divorce could also be heavily impacted which would mean substantially different outcomes for issues of property division, child custody and alimony tax after same-sex separation in the state of California.
