Famous documentary filmmaker from Flint files for divorce

Unfortunately, many marriages end in divorce, which seems especially true among celebrities. Almost all divorces are difficult but celebrity divorces often involve high value assets, which can only add to the complications. If someone in the Clinton Township area finds his or herself involved in a high asset divorce he or she should understand all the legalities that such a divorce involves.

One of the country's best-known documentary filmmakers, and Flint Native, Michael Moore has reportedly filed for divorce from his wife of 21 years. The divorce is most likely to bring a lot of attention as millions of dollars are expected to be involved. Moore's complaint asks that both he and his wife be restrained from transferring or selling any assets before the divorce is final.

According to court documents, Mr. Moore and his wife Kathleen Glynn are not living together and reportedly the complaint filed by Mr. Moore states that there is “no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.” Mr. Moore has retained an attorney, however, according to reports his wife, Ms. Glynn has not responded to the filing and has yet to hire an attorney.

When a couple decides to divorce, whether they are famous or not, there are many complications that can arise. Those complications can get even more difficult when the value of the assets involved is on the high end. Having a knowledgeable and experienced divorce attorney in one’s corner can make a big difference in how those assets will be split.
