Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman file for divorce

Hollywood star, Drew Barrymore, and art consultant, Will Kopelman, announced through Us Weekly that they are getting divorced. Barrymore has been known by many Missourians most of her life, from her introduction into Hollywood as childhood star of "E.T." to more recent movies, such as "The Wedding Singer," "Charlie's Angels," and "Never Been Kissed."

She and Kopelman married in 2012 and have two daughters together, a three-year-old and a soon-to-be two-year-old. This was Barrymore's third marriage, having been married to Jeremy Thomas in 1994, and comedian Tom Green in 2001.

It is unknown whether Barrymore and Kopelman created a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement before or during the marriage. But, it can only be assumed that with lifelong successes and major roles in movies, Barrymore has amassed considerable wealth.

During the divorce process, especially a high-net worth divorce, it may be difficult to determine who owns what and who is entitled to the marital property collected during the marriage. In addition, in instances where children are involved, such as the Barrymore and Kopelman divorce, it may be even more difficult to settle child support among the two parties.

Even for those living the lavish life of a Hollywood movie star, going through a divorce can be a complicated and stressful experience. Having a clear understanding of the process and seeking the assistance of an experienced attorney can be of utmost importance. This is especially important for those involved in a high asset divorce with complex asset division, as making the wrong decision could impact the money received during and after the divorce settlement.
