Kim Kardashian files for divorce after 10-week marriage

On Oct. 31, reality TV star Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from professional basketball player Kris Humphries. This may surprise many Massachusetts residents, as the couple has only been married for 10 weeks, but it has been confirmed that she is seeking to end the marriage.

Kardashian will not seek an annulment, and she has cited irreconcilable differences as her reason for seeking formal dissolution of the marriage. Though there had been some speculation that the marriage was troubled, this sudden divorce filing was unexpected, especially after the television network E! turned the couple's courtship and wedding into a huge spectacle. The network was still running reruns of the wedding special when the divorce was announced.

Hollywood divorces attract a lot of media attention, but being in such a spotlight often obscures the emotional strain experienced by the couple. While this was a short-lived relationship, there may still be financial issues resulting from their public wedding and the celebrity status of each. The couple had signed a prenuptial agreement, and Kardashian requested in the divorce filing that each side pay their own attorney's fees and that Humphries not be granted any spousal support.

The sudden end of a marriage can be difficult for both parties, and that is one reason why it is important to have all the facts concerning family law. An attorney can review the details, offer an objective view as to the best way in which to proceed and give one the comfort of being fully informed about all available options before proceeding.
