When the Rich and Famous Divorce

When the rich and famous get divorced their divorce settlements usually involve millions. lists 20 of the costliest celebrity divorce settlements of all time.   For example, according to The Guardian, media mogul Rupert Murdoch's divorce from his second wife Anna Torv cost him $1.7 billion.  The Daily Mail reported that Mel Gibson’s wife and mother of their seven children received approximately $850 million as part of their divorce settlement.   Wondering what other celebrities had to pay large settlements, click here.

Many of the celebrities cited in the article were married before they became rich and famous.  Those that married after their financial success may have avoided some of the emotional and financial fallout of their divorce if they had entered into a Prenuptial Agreement prior to their marriage.  It appears that all of these famous couples did enter into settlement agreements, enabling the couples to decide on the terms of their marital dissolultion rather than letting a judge decide the terms of their marital dissolution during a public trial.  

Attorney Geraldine Hess, and Hess Family Law can assist clients with the negotation and preparation of Prenuptial Agreements or Settlement Agreements.
