The end of a marriage typically has some degree of hardships. However, many couples in New Hampshire are able to work together to come to an amicable divorce settlement. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, and additional stress may be felt if the couple has achieved some degree of fame as the media is often eager to report details of the split.
For example, details regarding the divorce of former Olympian Michelle Kwan and her husband, former security staffer for the Obama administration, have recently been published in several news reports. According to reports, the couple initially met in 2011 and married in 2013. Court records have provided additional details of their split.
For example, Kwan claims she was unaware that her estranged husband had made the decision to file for divorce. She claims she only learned about his filing in California after seeing a post on social media about it. In turn she is asking that the case be moved to Rhode Island and that he no longer be allowed to have access to a house they purchased together in 2014.
While the process may be painful at times, many people in New Hampshire who have made the decision to end their marriage often discover that it is the best option for all involved parties. For these folks, the decision to divorce is often the first step to a happier and more fulfilling life. For those considering such an option, an attorney with experience with such matters can help them explore their options and take the most appropriate course of action.
