Comedic duo, Will Arnett and Amy Poehler, set to divorce

It isn't easy to separate from a spouse under most circumstances. Whether a couple has been together for a single year or 20, deciding to separate is no easy feat for either person. In fact, many Massachusetts couples will separate and attempt to work things out for some time before actually moving forward with a divorce. This is similar to what happened with a popular celebrity duo that many Massachusetts residents are quite familiar with.

Roughly 19 months ago, it had been reported that Will Arnett and his wife Amy Poehler had split. The couple had been married since 2003. Now, it appears that the 43-year-old actor, who is known for his role on "Arrested Development," has officially filed for divorce from the "Saturday Night Live" alum.

The couple share two young sons after their nine years of marriage. Arnett is seeking joint physical custody of the two children, who are 3 and 5. He is also requesting to have visitation rights, although initial reports did not make it clear as to what that would entail.

Celebrity or not, divorce can be handled in a way that both parents and children have their best interests protected. With an amicable split, the two spouses can generally agree on who gets what and determine child custody agreements that work for all involved. Unfortunately, not every divorce is amicable, but a Massachusetts court can intercede in cases where a couple cannot decide asset division, child custody and other divorce-related matters. This will generally ensure that each party gets what is rightfully theirs and if children are involved, that their best interests will be taken into account.
