Many people in Ohio may be familiar with comedian Andy Richter who has appeared in movies and has been on Conan O’Brien’s late night show for many years.
People may not be aware that he has been married for 27 years, though, and now he and his wife are going through a divorce. The couple separated a few months ago, but recently Richter officially filed for divorce.
The couple has two children, an 18-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl. Publicly, both Richter and his wife seem dedicated to raising their children amicably.
There are many issues that need to be resolved as people go through divorces. Separating one life into two lives can be complicated, especially after 27 years like Richter and his wife.
People who have children will have to determine whether they will share custody or whether only one parent will have it. They must determine parenting time schedules which will determine when each parent will have the children in their care. There are also holiday schedules and other issues regarding the children.
Couples also have to divide their property and figure out their finances. The longer people are married and the more they acquire, the more complicated this process will be.
People must divide bank accounts, retirement accounts, investment accounts, homes, household goods, vehicles and any other asset they have acquired during the marriage. They also must divide any debts that they have and decide who will be responsible for on-going debts that the couple has together.
Depending on the situation, divorce may be the only option for many couples in Ohio. However, before the couple can actually be divorced, they must go through the process of separating their lives. There are many issues that must be resolved, and it can be a complicated and lengthy process depending on the circumstances. Experienced attorneys understand the issues that must be resolved and may be able to guide one through the process.
