Recently, the wife of film director Rupert Sanders has filed for divorce in California.

Sanders, who had an affair with Twilight star Kristen Stewart, was hoping for reconciliation. Issues can come up in a divorce, including child custody. These issues can also sometimes be in dispute. In addition, these same matters, including the divorce itself, can also bring out difficult emotions and emotional challenges.

Several divorce options that may be available. A summary divorce is a process that may not even require a court appearance. To proceed with a summary divorce, the couple’s marriage should be relatively short, they should not have any children and they should not have any substantial amount of property subject to property division. Also, they have to agree to give up spousal support or alimony (and not have any major issues in dispute).

Couples may also seek an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is possible if the parties agree on issues such as child custody, child support, property division or spousal maintenance. If the spouse that did not file for divorce agrees to the divorce or does not appear in court, the divorce can be granted.

There is also a fault divorce can also be sought by divorcing couples. In a no fault divorce, the spouse filing for divorce does not have to prove any fault on the part of the other party and can instead state a reason such as “irreconcilable differences.”

The end of a marriage can be a difficult process. Understanding the legal options available to those seeking a divorce may help make the process a little less complicated.
