Reality TV star and former NFL player divorcing

One issue that sometimes comes up in connection to a divorce is spousal support. This can be seen in a celebrity divorce case that was recently reported on.

The case involves reality TV star Porsha Williams and former NFL player Kordell Stewart. Williams is part of the reality TV show "Real Housewives of Atlanta." Stewart played quarterback in the NFL for several years, spending the bulk of this time with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In May 2011, Williams and Stewart got married.

Last Friday, Stewart filed a petition for a divorce. This divorce filing reportedly was made in a court in Georgia. According to Stewart's filing, the marriage between Stewart and Williams is "irretrievably broken."

Stewart is asking that Williams not be granted any spousal support in the divorce. It will be interesting to see what happens in regards to the issue of spousal support in this divorce and what resolution is ultimately reached in regards to this issue.

Sometimes, spousal support issues are resolved amicably through an agreement. Other times, such issues lead to legal disputes that end up being resolved through a court decision.

Many different things can play a role in spousal support cases and what resolutions are ultimately reached in spousal support matters can have significant impacts on all of the parties involved.

Spousal support is one of the many complicated and impactful issues that can arise in connection to a divorce. Given how impactful divorces can be, having a strong advocate on one's side can be very important when getting a divorce.
