Even though married couples may enjoy each other’s company for several years, they sometimes grow apart. In some cases, a divorce is the best option for both spouses as well as their children. Thankfully, many New Jersey couples reach divorce agreement without resorting to contentious disputes.
Filmmaker Michael Moore and his wife Kathleen Glynn were married for 21 years before they decided to end their marriage. Some of the later years of their marriage may have been filled with tension; even before the divorce, the couple lived in separate homes. The couple has no children, which means that they will avoid any child custody or support disputes.
Because Moore has acquired significant financial assets, more than $50 million is at stake in the divorce. In addition, the couple owns a home that is worth $1.2 million. It is unknown whether the couple had signed a prenuptial agreement. Because the couple married before Moore became famous for his films, it is unlikely that he sought to protect his financial assets before their marriage. If they hadn’t signed an agreement before or during their marriage, Glynn may be entitled to receive a significant portion of Moore’s wealth.
Moore has reportedly hired an experienced divorce attorney, but Glynn has yet to seek legal assistance. When a couple has been married for a long period of time, their divorce can be full of emotion. Working with a divorce attorney can be helpful as divorcing couples separate their marital assets with as little conflict as possible.
