Celebrity Breakups and Divorce: Diane Lane and Josh Brolin

According to various news reports, on Valentines Day, February 14th, Hollywood actors Diane Lane and Josh Brolin signed divorce documents to end their eight year marriage. The couple reportedly have no children together.

Both actors have very busy, successful acting careers. We have discussed before in this divorce blog, (written by Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers), about how Hollywood careers can present special stressors on celebrity marriages. Of course, only Brolin and Lane need to know about their own situation which led to this reported breakup and divorce.

What are some of your favorite movies featuring these two actors? As for me, Ms. Lane starred in my favorite television mini-series, Lonesome Dove. I also enjoyed Brolin's performance in the movie, No Country for Old Men.

According to reports, Ms. Lane does a lot of charitable work "under the radar," i.e. without seeking recognition. Here's hoping that these two fine actors find happiness and have continued success.

Celebrity Marriage and Divorce: Steve Martin

Steve Martin is one of my favorite comedians! So, I really wanted to figure out a way to write a post about him which is relevant to this blog about divorce, (which is written by an Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyer). Here goes! See how I do!

Have you heard the good news about comedian Steve Martin? According to various news reports, Martin, an avid banjo player, stand up comedian, and talented star of such popular movies as Roxanne, Father of the Bride, and one of my favorites: Plains, Trains, and Automobiles, has just become a new father!

Martin and his wife, Anne Stringfield, have reportedly just had their first child together, but, according to the reports I have seen, no one yet knows the baby's gender. You may recall that Martin divorced actress Victoria Tennant back in 1994 and then later married his current spouse in 2007. I suppose that Martin's re-marriage and becoming a father for the first time, at age 67, illustrates that, frequently, people can go through divorces and still find happiness the second time around! Here's hoping for many blessings for Martin and his new (larger) family! 

So, how did I do? Did I successfully weave together a post about my favorite comedian with a topic related to divorce? I hope so! What is your favorite Steve Martin movie?

Celebrity Separations and Divorces: Tony Danza

How long does it take to get a divorce? Well, it depends! In the case of actor Tony Danza and his ex-wife, Tracy Robinson, it took between two and six years. But let me explain!

According to various news reports, Danza, the popular star of Taxi and Who's the Boss, and his spouse separated about six years ago, but the divorce case was not actually filed until about two years ago. So, technically, it only took about two years for their divorce to become final, based upon reports.

Of course, as Augusta, Georgia divorce attorneys, we see divorces take as little as a couple of months to complete and as long as a year or more, depending upon whether it is contested or uncontested, and whether or not child custody is contested.

We recommend that you discuss with your own divorce lawyer the question of how long the divorce will take, along with all other questions about your own particular divorce case.
