Ashley Judd and Dario Franchitti divorce after 11 years

A high-asset divorce often requires the resolution of several critical issues such as spousal support and the division of marital property. A divorce with many assets can be financially and emotionally draining, although this need not always be the case. Readers in Oklahoma City may want to know about one divorce between two celebrities that reportedly has not been become acrimonious.

Actress Ashley Judd is divorcing racecar driver Dario Franchitti after 11 years of marriage, according to an announcement made by Judd's spokesperson on Jan. 29.

The couple was married in 2001, in Scotland, which is Franchitti's native country.

The divorce appears to be amicable so far, according to tweets between Judd and Franchitti. She posted a tweet that implied that she and Franchitti would remain "Family forever" and he responded in kind. Franchitti's tweet was later deleted, although his website log still contains a record of the tweet.

Anyone who is going through an uncontested divorce in Oklahoma can expect the process to last at least 60 to 90 days if it does not require a trial. This can usually only be achieved by a sensible approach to resolving issues such as asset division, and this may require the parties involved to seek further information about their legal rights and responsibilities. A divorce typically requires 18 months to go to trial, so resolving issues amicably can save a lot of time and effort in the long run.

Every divorce has its own unique issues that must be resolved, so it is important to seek legal counsel to determine whether it is in a person's best interest to handle the divorce inside or outside of a courtroom.
