MLB slugger from Detroit officially files for divorce

When two people decide it’s time to divorce there are so many things they need to consider. Property division, alimony and the custody of children are all things that can come into play with divorce. Each of those things can be difficult for anyone, as well, including those considering divorce in the Clinton Township area.

Detroit Tigers slugger Prince Fielder has filed for a dissolution of marriage from his wife, Chanel Fielder, recently. The couple has been married since 2005 and they have two children together. Mr. Fielder signed a new $214 million contract just last year. So, not only will the custody of their children come into play during the separation proceedings, but also there will most likely be a battle over how much Mr. Fielder may have to pay in spousal support and child support.

The couple shares a home in the Detroit area as well as an off-season home in the Orlando, Florida area. Possession of those homes as well as any other property the couple shares will also most likely have to be determined in the divorce proceedings.

Deciding to divorce is usually not an easy decision for a person to make. Going through a divorce can be very difficult for anyone involved, as well. That’s why it’s important for a person going through divorce to understand all of the legal matters involved and how to handle those matters properly. Anyone who finds him or herself in this situation may want to meet with an experienced family law attorney.
