It has not been a good couple of weeks for the "Happy Endings" star Eliza Coupe. Just weeks after her showing "Happy Endings" was canceled, her husband served her with divorce papers after five years of marriage.
While the couple had only been married for five years, they had been together for 12 years. Her husband filed for divorce in Los Angeles and cited irreconcilable differences in the divorce filing. He is also seeking spousal support from the actress after their five-year marriage.
The couple does not have any children together so they will not need to determine child custody or support. However, due to the success of the actress on "Happy Endings" and other popular television series, the couple will have to decide how to divide their assets and any shared property.
During the divorce process, it can difficult for couples to divide assets, especially when one or both spouses have accumulated a lot of wealth over the years. In addition to dividing their assets and property, a judge will also have to determine if and how much spousal support her husband can receive according to state law.
Divorce negotiations can be difficult for every couple, especially when one spouse has been more successful or accumulated more wealth in the marriage. Even though one spouse may have made money, both spouses are entitled to the wealth that was earned during the marriage.
Individuals thinking about filing for divorce should consult a divorce attorney to discuss how the divorce process works and what factors are considered when dividing assets and property in their state. Understanding the divorce process and how negotiations will work will help ease the stress and make the divorce less difficult to handle.
