When It Comes to Divorce, Learn from Comedian Chris Rock’s Mistakes

Divorce can happen to anyone – even famous couples who appear to be in forever marriages. In fact, hardly a day goes by when we don’t hear about another Hollywood couple calling it quits. Further, famous people are not immune from the usual arguments that accompany the divorce process.

Just take a look at Chris Rock’s divorce from his wife of more than 18 years, Malaak. It only took a matter of days for a multitude of issues, comments and accusations to come out in the open shining a light into Rock’s personal life. Most notably, Rock accused his estranged wife of preventing him from seeing his children regularly, and is now moving for partial legal and physical custody. Malaak, so far, has neither confirmed nor denied the accusation, simply stating that “things didn’t work out.”

According to published reports, neither party has presented evidence suggesting that one parent had a lot more time with the children than the other, making it difficult to determine who’s in the right when court time comes.

Spousal support has also become an issue in the Chris Rock divorce. While the couple did have a pre-nuptial agreement drawn up at the beginning of their marriage, Rock said that it had expired. He also says his estranged wife is capable of working on her own, which suggests that he may want to avoid having to pay too much spousal support or child support.

Whether you are famous or not, make sure you keep your pre-nup up-to-date. Further, if you are going to toss out accusations, make sure you have evidence to back them up. Custody can quickly become a matter of “he said, she said” if there isn’t enough evidence presented in court.

The bottom line is that you should never expect a divorce to be 100 percent civil. Things can get nasty very quickly. Arm yourself with a fearless, skilled divorce lawyer who will fight to protect your rights and those of your children. You deserve a divorce agreement that will protect your lifestyle now and in the future. Call the office of Graziano & Flynn to speak with an experienced family lawyer who will guide you through the process.

Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino 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
