Country star�s wife seeks alimony, custody of children in divorce

No one ever plans on getting divorced when they marry, but things happen and sometimes couples decide that they can no longer be together. When someone in the Clinton Township area decides that divorce is the only answer, he or she will have to make many important decisions, including property division, alimony and possibly child custody and support.

The wife of country singer Trace Adkins has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband of 16 years. According to court papers, Rhonda Adkins filed the petition in a Tennessee court, recently. She reportedly cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the filing. According to court documents, Ms. Adkins is asking for primary residential custody of the couple’s three daughters, who are 16, 12 and nine.

Meantime, Ms. Adkins has apparently also asked for child support for the girls, as well as alimony, and she wants to be named as the primary beneficiary of her husband’s insurance policy. No other details of the filing were reported and at the time of this report Mr. Adkins had not publicly commented on his wife’s filing.

This is a high profile separation and no doubt it will continue to receive plenty of media coverage. However, whether your famous or not, divorce is never a pleasant thing to go through, but it can be made much worse if you don’t know how to wade through the legal process. Therefore, if you are facing the end of your marriage then you might want to seek the help of an experienced divorce attorney who can help you through the legal process.
