An online source, is reporting that pop star Madonna and Guy Ritchie have reached a quick settlement in their divorce. Most in the media were speculating that the proceedings would get ugly and Mr. Ritchie would walk away with half of Madonna’s fortune.
Fortunately in this situation the parties have reached an amicable split. They appear to have divided the time with the children between New York and London. This appears to be a couple who value the mental health of themselves and their children by reaching a settlement. I always tell my clients that the divorce proceeds as smoothly and quickly as you are willing to work together.
Not every couple can reach a divorce settlement like Madonna and Guy Ritchie can. I often suggest to my clients that they attempt at an uncontested divorce action for the sake of the children and the family.
