Tennis star's father in nasty divorce

There are many reasons married couples in Ohio make the decision to get a divorce. Communication problems, infidelity, intimacy issues or insurmountable personal differences are often cited by couples choosing to end a marriage. Monetary concerns certainly put a strain on even the strongest of unions. The father of tennis greats, Venus and Serena Williams, has filed for divorce and is making some serious allegations in the process.

Richard Williams, 75, has filed for divorce from his wife of seven years, Lakeisha Williams. Robert says he has reason to believe that his wife has been stealing his Social Security checks. He also claims she forged his name on a house deed and several car titles, making it appear as though he transferred them to her ownership.

The parties have a 5-year-old son, and Robert fears his child could be in danger. He claims his wife is an alcoholic and says she is now living with a person who is facing criminal charges. The lawyer representing Lakeisha has stated all Robert's statements against her client are lies that will be exposed when they go to court. She further expresses that he is laying groundwork to get out of having to pay spousal and child support.

Two embittered people fighting to get what each feels he or she deserves usually ends with one or both having feelings of disappointment, discontentment or downright anger. While an attorney is not a psychological counselor, he or she can help protect the interests of a client going through the divorce process. Finding the right Ohio attorney is crucial when fighting a particularly aggressive ex.
