Settlement reached in divorce between "Bachelor" creator and ex

When two Ohioans choose to end their marriage, some concessions might have to be made on both sides before it is final. Coming to a divorce agreement may take months or even years before the two can decide on a mutually acceptable agreement. Michael Fleiss, the creator of the famed "Bachelor" TV series, and his wife, Laura, have finally reached an agreement in their divorce proceedings.

One of the concessions made by Laura, a former Miss America, was to drop the temporary restraining order she had filed against him. Only a few weeks ago, she had filed a TRO claiming Fleiss had threatened her and then followed through on his threats of physical violence. Reportedly, Laura will receive $10 million. Fleiss denies the claims of physical abuse, although he was previously investigated by police over similar threats.

The two were married five years ago after meeting at the nation's most famous pageant, for which he was a judge. Laura broke the news she was expecting their second child. Days later, he filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. They have agreed to share legal and physical custody of their 4-year-old son.

A divorce can be as messy or as civil as the parties wants. However, even the most conciliatory divorce typically benefits from the expertise of a family law attorney. Using the services of an attorney in Ohio can bring peace of mind as he or she seeks to soften the burden for the client, allowing time to be spent with family during such an emotional period.
