Jennifer Lopez divorce finalized after several years

Massachusetts readers have likely heard about the divorce between the famous singers Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez. However, many people do not realize that the actual divorce process has taken several years and has only recently been finalized. Why do some divorces stretch out over several months and years? Many times, it is related to agreeing on details pertaining to money and child custody.

In this particular divorce, the two parties both have a large amount of money and have two children. Massachusetts parents of all income levels know how difficult it can be to make custody and visitation arrangements for something as important as the children. Through negotiations and working with their respective legal teams, both Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez have agreed to a custody arrangement. Neither parent will receive financial support.

The length of this divorce illustrates how long it can take for a couple to work through the vital parts of a divorce. However, divorces can be much faster and easier when couples can work through mediation to decide contentious issues. This can include everything from educational preferences to weekend visitation. Not every couple will have the income level of these celebrities, but every couple has the right to work through each decision and issue during the divorce process.

Divorce is never an easy process, and for this reason, parents may wish to shield their children from any possible emotional turmoil. This can be done by working together to resolve issues or negotiating on a reasonable outcome. While no one assumes that a divorce will always be a simple process, it certainly does not have to take as long as it did for this particular couple.
