Though the notoriety and financial benefits of celebrity may appeal to some Phoenix residents, few individuals would actually like to live under the spotlight of Hollywood fame. Celebrities are subjected to a level of scrutiny that may cause some to flee for more normal existences, so they don't have to see every misstep of their lives played out in the news. One former celebrity couple has made the news for years as they have attempted to end their highly publicized marriage.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were married in 2014 but Jolie filed for divorce just two years later. The partners share six children, and each has accumulated significant wealth over the span of their Hollywood careers. As of the new year, Pitt and Jolie had still not finalized their divorce and remained technically married; this changed just recently when a judge bifurcated their legal dilemma.
This action effectively let the former partners lose their married statuses in favor of regaining their single statuses. Despite the fact that they may consider themselves no longer married, they must still resolve a host of financial issues that have yet to be settled over the course of the two-and-a-half-year divorce.
While a divorce may seem like a fast process to disentangle the lives of two married people, a high asset divorce may take years to resolve. The length of an Arizona divorce will depend on many factors and cannot generally be predicted at the time of filing. As with all family law matters, individuals with concerns about the lengths of their divorces may want to contact their trusted divorce attorneys.
