Tom Arnold files for divorce from wife

On Behalf of | Feb 27, 2019 | Divorce

Sometimes, an Ohio couple will agree that the marriage is not working, but they will not agree on a settlement that comes with the ensuing dissolution. An impending divorce will find both sides needing to agree on many issues, from division of assets to child support and custody. Actor Tom Arnold and his soon-to-be ex do not agree on certain issues while they are going through their divorce.

Arnold and his wife, Ashley Groussman, were married in 2009 and confirmed a separation just weeks ago to the media. Records show he actually filed for divorce earlier this month. At that time, he did not indicate that he was willing to pay spousal support, but he did want joint custody of their two children, a 5-year-old boy and 3-year-old girl.

Groussman, however, has requested physical and legal custody of the children as well as spousal support in an unspecified amount. The statements Arnold has made to the press make it sound as if the breakup of the marriage is amicable and there are no hard feelings, even though it seems like the divorce has been imminent for quite some time. He claims he is thankful for the relationship, as it gave him their children.

Most couples either decide on their own or are court-ordered to compromise in order to move on to a new life. While this process can be frustrating, it is needed for the emotional well-being of the couple themselves, and even more so for any children they may have. No matter the state of the relationship, utilizing the services of an Ohio attorney will help the progression of the divorce procedure go as smoothly as possible.
