Jane Seymour finalizes divorce from husband of 22 years

Jane Seymour, former star of the popular television show “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” has finalized her divorce from husband James Keach. Keach was Seymour’s fourth husband, and the two were married for 22 years. Seymour, 64, and Keach, 68, filed for divorce in April 2013 and only recently finalized the process. It was reported that the actress will keep a home in Malibu, an estate in England, and lump sum of $132,000 from the divorce. Her former husband will walk away with L.A. Dodgers season tickets.

The amicable separation made it possible for the couple to also split certain shared property. For example, the former pair will share their Sherwood Country Club membership, 100 gold South African Krugerrands, and 100 Canadian Maple Leave Coins. The two worked on multiple projects together, including “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” and “Walk the Line,” any additional profits from which will also be shared.

Seymour recently opened up in an interview about divorcing in her 60s and the effects it has had on her family. The couple co-parents adult twin boys, and Seymour is the mother of two other children from previous marriages.

Illinois billionaire Ken Griffin’s divorce finalized

The divorce between Citadel CEO Kenneth Griffin and Anne Dias Griffin has been finalized after a 14 month dispute over their prenuptial agreement. The divorce case between the 46-year-old hedge fund mogul and his former spouse was finalized on October 6, a day before the trial over their prenuptial agreement battle would have begun.

The estranged couple would have had to attend a series of trials until next year had they remained unable to come to terms on their own.

Data shows that divorce occurs in 79 percent of separations

According to a recent study, divorce occurs in nearly 79 percent of all marital separations. Factors such as children and the length of the separation are all taken into account when a divorce is being determined.

Separation seems  to be more common then just going straight to divorce, especially in couple’s that have young children under the age of 5. Researchers did an analysis on 7, 272 individuals that were in between the ages of 14 and 22 and were married at some point.

Out of the individuals, 51 percent of the couples were still married. Out of the rest of the couples, 60 percent stated that they have been through some type of marital separation and 79 percent of this group stated that their separation resulted in a divorce. The average separation is four years if a couple divorces and if the couple reunites, the average number of years is two.

Texas Supreme Court considers divorce forms

The Texas Supreme Court is currently considering whether they will approve the idea of using divorce forms in the state as a way to make it much easier and cheaper to get a divorce for those who may not usually be able to afford an attorney.

The idea of using ‘Do-It-Yourself” divorce forms is a very controversial one. On one side of the argument, you have a group of people that think that this will make the process much easier and the legal system will be more accessible.

The other group thinks that the divorce and family law in general is too much of a sensitive matter to be able to handle without the help of an experienced legal professional. The court used a task force to help create these forms so that Texans who can not afford a lawyer can still get a divorce.

The forms were meant for less complicated divorces where there are no children and few other assets to divide. Texas is currently one of only 13 states that does not have any type of divorce form. The task force then presented these forms to a board and it is unknown whether the board will approve the forms for the court’s use or if the court will make up their own.

If you or a loved one has been considering a divorce, you need representation on your side at this time that may be able to help you receive the compensation that you deserve. Contact the Colleyville divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates today by calling 817-756-4040 today.

Study finds connection between health and age when divorced

Michigan State University sociologists have researched the topic of divorce and health, and have found a connection between health problems and age when divorced.

There were 1,282 participants in the study, which spanned over a 15 year timeline. Several factors were examined during that time, including: age when married, age when divorced, health status throughout marriage, and health status throughout divorce. The findings were published in the Social Science & Medicine magazine.

The study showed that individuals who went through a divorce between the ages of 35 and 41 suffered from more health complications than people who experienced a divorce at a later age. These results were compared to the health statuses of the participants who stayed married throughout the entire course of the study.

If you are considering divorce, it is important to have experienced representation on your side. Please contact the Colleyville divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates by calling 817-756-4040 today.
