In any divorce, money can be the center of arguments. During a divorce, it’s important to make sure you protect what is yours. Speaking with an attorney may help you do just that, especially when your case is a high-asset divorce that could become messy with disagreements about property division, the division of retirement accounts or bank accounts, or other assets.
Recent celebrity news from Jan. 8 stated that the financial disagreement in the divorce of Jane Lynch and Lara Embry has been settled. Initially, it was alleged that Embry had asked for $93,000 in spousal support. That request was denied. It was reported that there was a large settlement; however, the amount was not released to the news. According to Lynch, the divorce was filed in 2013 due to irreconcilable differences. Lynch did not have a prenuptial agreement; however, despite this, it was reported that she was able to keep her home in California, even though it was against the normal divorce division rules. Lynch is the stepmother to Embry’s 11-year-old daughter, who she says she is close to. There was no report on whether she would keep any right to visitation or custody at this time.
Divorce is difficult for everyone who is involved. When assets are involved or a lot of money is at stake, this can lead to disagreements and tension. If you want to protect what is rightfully yours or want to make sure you get what you deserve during your divorce, it’s important to seek legal help. An attorney may help you determine what you’re entitled to and the best method to seek those assets.
