Choosing to end a marriage is seldom easy. Illinois couples who are facing issues may be familiar with many challenges others have gone through before them. When divorce issues are intertwined with child custody matters, things can quickly become complicated and stressful. Such seems to have been the case for celebrities, Bethenny Franker and her now former husband, Jason Hoppy.
Frankel is a reality television star who recently finalized her divorce from businessman, Hoppy. It appears that a central concern was the ongoing custody battle in which the two had been engaged over 6-year-old daughter, Bryn. Two years ago, they resolved the issues concerning their little girl, but divorce proceedings raged on, mainly due to the fact that Frankel had purchased the former couple’s home in Tribeca, but Hoppy was the one living in it.
Frankel, 45, had apparently purchased the home through a trust. However, she was supposedly being forced to live in hotel rooms and other temporary residences. Hoppy has since moved out of the home, and the two are reportedly in a shared parenting situation together.
Contentious court battles between Illinois parents may place children in precarious positions. Some may be confused as to where their loyalties should lie. Any parent facing a strenuous child custody or divorce situation may seek guidance from an attorney who has experience addressing family law matters. Although it is rare to achieve a solution overnight to such emotionally-charged problems, by acting alongside a skilled attorney, one might increase the chances of obtaining positive results in as swift and economically feasible a fashion as possible.
