Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom officially divorced

Three years after TV reality star Khloe Kardashian first filed for divorce, a Los Angeles judge has approved the dissolution of her marriage with former NBA player Lamar Odom.

Although the decision was released last Friday, the court document states the couple’s marriage will be legally dissolved December 17, along with their joint company, Khlomar. Both Kardashian and Odom waived spousal support as part of their agreement.

Kardashian initially filed for divorce last December 2013, but she called it off when Odom was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel due to a drug and drinking binge. After the couple’s reconciliation, she filed another petition seeking to end their marriage. She cited “irreconcilable differences.” The two did not have any children but were married for more than four years.

Jeremy Renner and Sonni Pacheco finalize their divorce

Jeremy Renner, the 44-year-old Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation actor, finalized his divorce from 23-year-old model Sonni Pacheco on December 28. They tied the knot in 2014, and the marriage lasted 10 months. Pacheco filed for divorce in December of 2014 and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason. The two have a 2-year-old daughter, Ava.

Yahoo reported that Renner has been ordered to pay $13,000 each month in child support. In addition to that, the actor is set to include 5% of the excess from his annual salary in the child support agreement. Spousal support, however, was denied since Pacheco signed a prenuptial agreement back in 2013.

Before the custody battle was finally concluded, Renner alleged that his now ex-wife was unfit to be a parent, saying that Pacheco constantly drank alcohol and attended parties instead of tending to their daughter.

Are there benefits to a prenuptial agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a legally binding document that is created prior to a marriage; it outlines how, if a couple decides to end its marriage, the couple will divide its assets and properties. Every prenuptial agreement is highly specific, and many couples include individualized situations that may arise in the future to protect themselves financially.

Some wonder if a prenuptial agreement is worth it. Every couple will have to decide for itself if such an agreement benefits the couple. However, those marriages that involve significant property assets and money might benefit from the financial protection offered by a prenuptial agreement. A prenuptial agreement offers legal protection for both individuals who are entering into a marriage.

The best way to know if a pre-nuptial agreement is right for you is to speak with an attorney about your situation. An experienced Monmouth County divorce attorney will have the experience you need to learn more about how a prenuptial agreement works and how it might affect your future. Fortunately, the attorneys of the Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq., can help with this issue.
