Dissolution can be an overwhelming process, but family law resources provide tools to help couples and families through the process. Former NBA basketball player Scottie Pippen recently filed for divorce in Florida from his wife of 19 years, Larsa Pippen. Larsa has been on the Real Housewives of Miami television show. The couple shares 4 children and is reportedly making their welfare a priority during the divorce. In a statement from Larsa's representative, Larsa noted that the best interests of the children are their priority and that she hopes they work respectfully together towards that end. The couple shares a daughter and three sons.
It has been reported that Pippen is seeking full custody of the couple's children. It has also been reported that the couple has a prenuptial agreement, which may address alimony and other divorce-related issues. Pippen reportedly wants to move the children from Miami to Chicago. There are a variety of important issues that come up during a divorce that can have a significant impact on the family, couple and children.
Divorce-related issues such as properly division, spousal support, child custody and child support must all be worked out during the divorce process. The divorcing couple is always encouraged to agree to the resolution of as many divorce-related issues as possible as part of finalizing the divorce process. When they are unable to agree, the family law process provides considerations and guidelines to help resolve divorce-related issues for the couple.
Divorce is a period of significant change for most families, which can present challenges and difficulties for families to face. The family law process is available to help guide them along to help them resolve their concerns in a manner that is best for their children and their particular needs and situation.
