High Profile Celebrity Couple Divorce

Celebrity couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have announced that they will be getting a divorce following almost ten years of marriage.

The announcement came following a joint statement on the matter after the mainstream had reported a potential divorce. The couple, who have three children, have confirmed that Affleck will continue to live separately on the same property as Garner for the sake of his children and the family.

According to multiple media sources, the couple is worth at least $150 million and announced their divorce a day after their tenth wedding anniversary. According to numerous sources, the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement but will work with managers, business managers and mediators to negotiate their settlements from the divorce. It has already been announced that they have agreed to share custody of their three children.

The negotiation process could take a relatively long time as although Ben Affleck has had more success on the big screen, a substantial amount of capital comes from syndication from Garner’s former show Alias. The negotiations may also be drawn out over the numerous properties owned by the couple with an LA ranch, a Manhattan apartment, a ski chalet and an 83-acre estate in Georgia.

Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements are one of the most common ways to protect your interests and ensure your assets are protected in the event of a divorce. Many people believe that by getting a prenuptial agreement it is the sign that a relationship is doomed to fail or that it is somewhat distasteful to plan for divorce before or just after marriage, However, prenuptial agreements do not need to be used just because they are there, but can prove useful in avoiding costly litigation and legal fees. Furthermore, it prevents any of the bitterness from the breakdown of the marriage from coming across in the negotiations. The idea of a prenuptial agreement effectively provides a safety blanket for any marriage and can ensure that the interests of both parties are protected in the event of a split. We recommend that if you are getting married or getting a civil partnership that you get a prenuptial agreement.
