Kris and Bruce Jenner’s divorce now finalized

Kris and Bruce Jenner, the parent stars in “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” have reportedly finalized their divorce, the Daily News revealed on December 18.

A Los Angeles County judge allegedly signed the couple’s divorce papers, ending their 23 years of marriage. According to the report, 59-year-old Kris Jenner filed for divorce last September due to irreconcilable differences, although court documents show the pair separated on June 1, 2013. The couple was able to divide their assets amicably, despite the lack of a prenuptial agreement.

The couple has two daughters, 17-year-old Kylie and 18-year-old model Kendall.

Reeser cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split. Although Reeser requested joint physical and legal custody of their two sons, Finneus and Dashiell, she refused to pay her 36-year-old husband spousal support.

The 34-year-old actress, who played roles on television series Hawaii Five-0, Entourage, and The O.C., is said to have a net worth of $3 million.

Age difference increases likelihood of divorce

A recent study showed age differences between spouses may predict the likelihood of getting divorced, according to an online report published in The Atlantic on November 9.

The study, which analyzed the data from more than 3,000 Americans who were recently married and divorced, revealed a 5-year age difference between couples make them 18% more likely to get divorced, while couples with even a meager 1-year gap are 3% more likely to call it quits on their marriage. On the other hand, couples born on or around the same year are more likely to stay together. It could be because couples who have wider age gaps between them might not share the same cultural reference points and interests compared to same-aged couples. Regardless of the reason, it is not uncommon for couples to realize that divorce is their best option.

The attorneys at Holmes, Diggs & Sadler, in Houston understand how complicated and sensitive this process can be, but we have the experience and compassion to protect your rights and interests throughout. Call our qualified legal team at (713) 802-1777 today to learn more.

Incriminating audiotape may affect Stephen Collins’ divorce

Accusations of child molestation against 7th Heaven star Stephen Collins might impact the upcoming divorce proceeding between him and his estranged wife, Faye Grant, CBS News reported on Thursday, October 9.

Collins’ legal representative has accused Grant of leaking the audiotape allegedly containing Collins’ confession of committing sexual misconduct with underage girls. Collins’ lawyer stated that Grant has been using the audio file to blackmail Collins, saying that Grant threatened to release the audio file to the media if his client refused to pay her millions of dollars more than what asset division would normally entitle her to.

Amber Rose-Wiz Khalifa split not amicable

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are now engaged in a blame game weeks after their divorce went public, a report by the Mail Online stated on September 27.

According to the report, the 30-year-old model filed for divorce the day after she caught him with another woman. However, the rap artist said he was not cheating, as he made it clear to Amber that their marriage was over weeks before she filed for divorce.

The divorce papers stated the model is seeking full custody of their one-year-old son, although Whiz Khalifa countered the claim by asking the court to grant him joint custody. The two signed a prenuptial agreement that would grant Amber a one-time payment of $1 million and an additional $5,000 every month from Wiz if they split.

Holmes Diggs’ Case Management System Saves Clients’ Money While Delivering Results

For years, Cindy Diggs, managing partner at Holmes, Diggs & Sadler PLLC, had to pass on divorce cases that weren’t very complicated, referring these out to other attorneys and law firms, as her firm’s billing rates tend to be a better fit for larger, more complex cases.

As a solution, in 2010 the firm hired two recent law grads. The firm has hired two more recent graduates since then. Cindy Diggs continues that tradition today, and has hired a new law grad who starts full time this month. Diggs calls these recent grads “baby lawyers,” and she thinks the concept represents the future of her firm, which primarily represents divorce clients.

“Lots of people come to Cindy for family law help, but can’t afford the expertise she provides,” Houston plaintiff lawyer Randy Sorrels says. “So what she has done is chosen to offer herself in a supervisory role over these young lawyers. The client is getting a lawyer who is being supervised and guided by an expert, so it’s the best of all worlds. And it’s a foundation for her to grow her firm.”
