Everyone knows that weddings can be very expensive. But did you know that divorces can be just as expensive? Unless you have no children and no assets whatsoever, you can expect to pay a fairly substantial sum. What is a fairly substantial sum, you ask?
Actor Brendan Fraser has asked the court to modify the amount of alimony and child support that he is paying his ex-wife for herself and their three minor children. Brendan said that he can no longer afford the $900,000 per year because his work prospects have lessened and that he has medical issues.
I recently read an article which quoted actor Alex Baldwin and his infamous custody battle with Kim Basinger. Alex said that he felt that Kim was using a form of parental alienation to gain an edge in court. Many agree that custody litigation is particularly brutal: the goal seems to be to make the other side look as bad as possible.
