Kim Kardashian officially divorced

When we hear about celebrities in the news or read about them in magazines, it's easy to quickly pass judgment, assuming their lives are nothing like ours. And while many in Louisiana may not have the fortune or fame that celebrities do, one aspect of some people's lives may be more like celebrities than they think. We are talking about divorce.

When a couple decides to divorce -- whether in Louisiana or Hollywood -- they have to go through the process of separating their lives. This means agreeing on property division, spousal support, child custody and child support among other things. For couples who are able to divorce amicably, solutions to these issues can often be reached fairly quickly. However, couples who are not on good terms -- celebrity or not -- can find themselves caught in a long legal battle.

A recent example of contentious divorce is that of reality TV star Kim Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries. The couple split in 2011 after just 72 days of being married, but their short marriage was followed by a lengthy divorce.

After Kardashian filed divorce papers, Humphries refused to go along with it, instead requesting that their marriage be annulled. He argued that their marriage was fraudulent because Kardashian only married him to increase her fame. After more than a year, however, the couple was officially granted a divorce today.

While a lengthy divorce may be necessary in some cases, most couples would rather not draw out the process. For this reason, it may be wise to talk to your attorney about how to ensure your divorce goes as smoothly as possible while still being fair.
