Ohio residents may have seen some recent studies that show the divorce rate in the nation is down from previous years. It does not seem to be true in the entertainment world, however, as news of another celebrity marriage hits the media nearly every day. Ben Affleck is not the only member of his family starting a new life post-divorce. Casey Affleck and his wife recently finalized their own divorce.
Affleck and Summer Phoenix, sister to Joaquin and the late River Phoenix, were married 10 years but had spent 16 years together. They separated late in 2015 and were able to keep it quiet for nearly six months before the news was released to the public. They have two sons, ages 13 and 9.
The details of their child and spousal support arrangements have been kept private, although Affleck will be the one making the payments for both. Sources said at the time of the formal announcement the two had maintained a friendly relationship since they separated. Although they still seem to be close, they have not been seen together at a public event in three years.
Going through a divorce can be difficult, trying to answer questions asked by family, friends and even the other spouse. In a time where a person’s world seems to be crumbling and where there is sometimes unbearable emotional pain, a savvy Ohio family law attorney can help right an upside-down world. The lawyer will handle the legal intricacies that can be so daunting to those who are trying to focus on opening a new chapter in their lives.
