Halle Berry Divorce Case Moving Slowly, Could Be Dismissed for Lack of Action

Hollywood superstar Halle Berry and her husband Olivier Martinez need to act soon or risk having their divorce case tossed out of court.

In October 2015, Berry and Martinez filed for divorce and submitted divorce paperwork in Los Angeles, California. However, Berry and Martinez not followed through on their divorce since that time, prompting the divorce court judge to warn the estranged couple that they need to act soon.

The Los Angeles County divorce court recently issued a Notice of Case Review Regarding Default because Berry and Martinez have not followed up with the necessary paperwork in a timely fashion. The Notice of Case Review means that Berry and Martinez must now submit the required divorce paperwork or file a dismissal of the divorce case. If Berry and Martinez fail to take action, the divorce court will be forced to dismiss the case.

There has been some speculation that Berry and Martinez may have reconciled and have decided not to actually go through with the divorce. However, media outlets are reporting that the divorce is “definitely still happening.” The problem is reportedly that the paperwork is just taking a lot of time because Berry and Martinez are both working actors in Hollywood and have busy schedules that include raising their children. (Berry and Martinez have a two-year-old son, while Berry also has an eight-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.)

The reality is that the divorce process is extremely complicated and often involves a number of nuances legal issues. Moreover, the paperwork that needs to be filed in a divorce case can be cumbersome and time consuming. That’s why anyone who is involved in the divorce process in California, New Jersey, New York, or anywhere else really needs to have a qualified family law attorney representing them.

Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Robyn made the divorce process bearable by making sure I was ok every step of the way. She was a fighter when she needed to be and compassionate the rest of the time. The thing I liked best about her is that she was encouraging when I needed to get my end of the work done. She was reasonably priced and worked hard to get my case settled. I have since recommended her to 3 other friends who have retained her services. Ana Z.
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Graziano and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
After a divorce, my ex-husband was not keeping up with his scheduled child support payments. With the help and knowledge of Robyn Flynn, I was able to resolve this issue. Being a single mother of three children, Robyn Flynn made me a priority. I felt respected by her always keeping me informed and encouraged. She was not only my lawyer, but a friend during a very stressful time in my life. I would never use another attorney other than Robyn Flynn and highly recommend her to my friends as a trustworthy, professional and experienced lawyer. Anna H.
