Black Keys guitarist in the middle of divorce

Ending a marriage can bring intense grief and complicated legal proceedings. A divorce can also be more difficult when a child is involved. Morris County music fans may be surprised to hear that one popular musician is currently in the middle of this process, news that broke just weeks after an award-winning night at the Grammy Awards.

Sources close to Dan Auerbach, one half of the successful rock band The Black Keys, recently announced the musician's separation from his wife. It was noticeable on Feb. 10 at the Grammy Awards ceremony that his spouse was absent from his side. The news comes just after a triumphant night of winning four awards - Best Rock Song, Best Rock Album, Best Rock Performance and Best Producer - for the work done on the band's latest album, El Camino.

Being a part of a platinum-selling group, Auerbach has a jam-packed year ahead. In addition to a busy schedule, a divorce can easily be time consuming and bring stressful emotions. In this case, the man has a 4-year-old daughter with his wife, and the child is likely to be affected by the separation. A representative for Auerbach declined to comment on the musician's personal life.

A high-asset divorce such as this one presents a number of potential legal problems. Property division, alimony and prenuptial agreements can be involved and difficult to navigate. Obtaining information from reliable sources can help ease the tension of the transitional periods before and after a divorce. During such a life-changing time in one's life, it is vital to explore every avenue available that gives simple and significant assistance.
