Harvey Weinstein admits his wrongdoing, leading to divorce

Former film studio executive Harvey Weinstein is currently going through a difficult family law situation to which some California readers may relate. The average individual does not have his or her marital problems plastered across news venues, however, which may Weinstein's situation a bit more challenging. As it stands, most people who follow Hollywood news are likely aware that Weinstein's wife of 10 years has decided to seek a divorce.

Some divorces occur without much surprise to either spouse. Issues may be simmering for years, slowly building up, until spouses mutually decide the best option for solution to their problems is divorce. In other situations, a particular incident or string of incidents may cause an abrupt and unexpected breakdown in a marriage. In either case, things may get a whole lot worse before they get better, especially if children are involved and parents disagree about where they should live or how they should be raised.

In Weinstein's situation, his wife decided to leave him over the recent accusations of his inappropriate sexual conduct. He has publicly admitted his wrongdoing and says he is currently receiving counseling in the hope that he will mend his ways and win back his soon-to-be former wife's affections. The Weinsteins have two children. They also reportedly signed a prenuptial agreement before they married.

The Weinstein marriage only lasted a couple years. Relationships of short duration sometimes affect an ultimate outcome in court concerning alimony and child support. An experienced California family law attorney can advocate on behalf of a client to protect his or her rights and seek the maximum amount of support to which that particular spouse may be entitled in divorce.
