Liberty Ross and Rupert Sanders headed for divorce

As many people in Georgia remember, "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders and Kristen Stewart, the starring actress, were caught cheating on their significant others when intimate photos of the twosome became public last summer. Both Sanders and Stewart apologized publicly and stated that it was a "momentary indiscretion." While Stewart has since reconciled with her boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, Rupert Sanders' wife Liberty Ross has now filed for divorce.

Ross reportedly started divorce proceedings at the end of January in a L.A. Superior Court, and she is seeking shared custody of their two children, ages 5 and 7, as well as spousal support and attorney's fees. Sanders filed his response on the same day, and he is also looking for joint custody but is asking to split the legal costs, according to a news report.

As celebrity divorces often illustrate to the public, going through a divorce can be a painful and often messy process. Divorce laws differ from state to state, and understanding divorce laws in Georgia can be challenging, especially when people are attempting to deal with the emotional fallout associated with a divorce.

Divorces involving children are sometimes hotly contested, and having an experienced divorce lawyer may help people ensure that the divorce is completed fairly. Still, even childless divorces may end up involving extensive negotiations to split property and assets. It is often wise for both parties to seek legal representation to help negotiations go smoothly and avoid a lengthy court case when possible.
