Regardless of who you are, your financial standing or your family makeup, getting a divorce can force you to deal with some serious legal issues. The outcome of these matters can reshape your financial and emotional future, and may even define how much time you get to spend with your children. Although many couples are able to resolve these family law legal issues in an amicable way, many others are forced to take their marriage dissolution to court where arguments are made and a judge issues a ruling to settle the matters.
This is where one high-profile divorce stands after the parties separated in 2007. The case, which involves the founder of Cancer Treatment Centers of America and his wife, involves extremely valuable assets. The couple is battling over the division of those assets as well as spousal support. The ex-wife is now seeking $400,000 a month in alimony, stating that the amount is necessary to maintain the standard of living she enjoyed while married.
