Yolanda and David Foster Announce Divorce After Trial Separation

The reality stars of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills announced the end of their marriage after months of separation on Tuesday, Dec. 1. Yolanda and David Foster “knew it wouldn’t work” for months before finally making the decision to divorce. The causes for the split stem from Yolanda’s battle with Lyme disease, which pulled the couple apart as she was recovering, and David’s continued traveling for work and charity.

Reports indicate that Yolanda felt as if her husband was not there for her in her time of need. In addition, the couple led separate lives as Grammy-winner David continued to work towards his music career and former Dutch model Yolanda was on bed rest. Yolanda was diagnosed with Lyme disease shortly after her marriage to David in Nov. 2011.

Hours after announcing her divorce, Yolanda blogged about her health struggle with Lyme disease, citing her hopes that a cure for the chronic condition will be discovered soon and sharing her personal experience with the illness. The couple is amicable in their separation, noting that they tried their best and their love has not changed.

Divorce will almost always be an incredibly trying emotional experience for any spouse, making the guidance of a compassionate and skilled attorney all the more valuable.

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez headed for divorce

Hollywood star Halle Berry has decided to end her two year marriage with French celebrity Olivier Martinez. Reports said Martinez, 49, had also filed his divorce papers from Berry, 49, the day after the actress filed her papers on October 26. In the competing divorce papers of the estranged couple, both parties are seeking the shared custody of their 2-year-old son.

Information coming from a person close to Berry and Martinez revealed that the two are simply too different to make their relationship work, and instead have decided to continue raising their son as partners, rather than husband and wife. In an announcement regarding the divorce, the couple asked the public to respect their privacy and that of their child.

If you have decided to file for divorce, seeking a lawyer’s help will be essential to making sure that your children’s future and your rights are safeguarded.

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez File Separate Divorce Petitions

Halle Berry has filled a petition for what will be her third divorce, this time from current husband Oliver Martinez, on October 23. The actress originally filed under the alias “Hal Maria” and later submitted a revised petition that removed the pseudonym. Martinez filed a separate petition on the following Tuesday, a factor that may play a role in the divorce court proceedings.

It is reported that both parties filed for joint custody of their 2-year-old son, Maceo. The couple had discussed moving to France, Martinez’s home country, but Berry has apparently elected to remain in the United States due to the decision to divorce.

In 2012, Martinez was a part of a violent brawl with Berry’s ex, Gabriel Aubrey. This episode could be used against Martinez if the couple does not agree on a custody arrangement and the matter goes to court. Custody may also become a point of contention due to Martinez’s choosing to reside in Europe while Berry remains in California. She specifically asked the courts to order Martinez to seek permission before removing their shared child from California.

While the couple has spoken to reporters about keeping the divorce amicable, there are already signs of possible contention down the road. Divorce is never a simple or emotionally easy process. As such, your divorce lawyer should be compassionate as well as experienced and dedicated to your case.
