Divorce in Hollywood Much the Same in Arizona

Divorce can happen to anyone who is in an unhappy marriage. It has recently come to light that Nikki Reed of the "Twilight Saga" series has filed for a divorce from her husband, 29-year-old Paul McDonald. McDonald became famous from his stint on "American Idol" as a contestant. Their separation occurred in March 2014.

Reed has been seen with Derek Hough, who is famous for being on "Dancing with the Stars," and she may be dating this person despite the divorce not yet being finalized. It might be over soon, however - papers have been filed to have the separation legally finalized in Los Angeles Superior Court. The paperwork was filed on May 23rd.

The court documents state irreconcilable differences, and they also stipulate that McDonald not be given any type of spousal support.

McDonald and Reed were married in October 2011. They seemed to be deeply in love after a whirlwind romance. They both agreed at the time of the separation that their split was friendly.

They officially announced their separation two months ago, and they are currently working on an album together that will feature both of them. The name of the album is "I'm Not Falling," which may be a sign that they remain good friends and that they are still working together.

In the past, Reed has said that their love of music is what kept them together and that she put her husband first before everything.

She also said in the past that it was easy to lose track of what is important in life when you live the Hollywood lifestyle of making movies and going on tour. She stated that, in the past, it was important to her to be with McDonald and to make each other their priority.

Having the assurance that your assets, which you worked hard to obtain, are in good hands when it comes to a divorce is comforting. Arizona residents do not necessarily need to be celebrities to take action in ensuring that their assets are protected during a divorce.
