The Hollywood world was taken by surprise by the duel announcement last week of the separation of television and film stars Chris Pratt and Anna Faris. Pratt is well known as the star in the most recent "Jurassic Park" film and hit "Guardians of the Galaxy" film series; Faris is currently starring in the television sitcom "Mom." The announcement comes as a surprise to many as the couple have been very outgoing in the support of each other during their eight-year marriage.
Pratt and Faris have a four-year-old son together and spoke about their willingness to work together to make certain the son is not affected by the breakup. The two acknowledge that they still love each other and have the deepest respect for each other.
Based on their joint statement, it appears that the two will be willing to work together during the separation. A relationship built on respect also becomes important if they do decide to divorce. The courts are more likely to award joint custody if it can be proven that the two can work together amicably. Considering the likelihood that there is considerable weather between the two of them, it would still be in their best interests to make certain that they have a strong lawyer at their side.
It is not uncommon for property division among couples to become complicated, especially during a high asset divorce. In order to make certain that your rights are not violated and that decisions in the courts are made to protect your best interests, you may want to reach out to a law firm familiar with family law for advice, support and representation in the courts. Having a strong, dedicated and experienced team at your side can make all the difference.
