Former SNL star says wife should get spousal support in divorce
Life as an actor or other type of entertainer in California (or anywhere for that matter) is often filled with challenges, especially for those who happen to be married with children. Sometimes, life on the road or traveling back and forth between a family home and hotel can place undue hardships on marital relationships. Unfortunately, some marriages can't survive the pressure. SNL alumnus, Bill Hader, may relate to this description as he has recently filed for divorce from his Maggie Carey, a screenwriter and director.
The two have worked together on creative projects in the past. They also have three children together, ages 3, 5 and 8. They've been married since 2006, but Hader cited irreconcilable differences in his filing for divorce.
He also stated that he thinks his wife should get spousal support as part of their divorce settlement. Hader wants the court to approve a shared legal and physical custody arrangement for the couple's children. When parents agree on issues pertaining to future parenting plans in divorce, they can devise their own agreement and then seek the court's approval.
If, on the other hand, one parent does not think a particular plan is in the best interests of his or her children, litigation may be necessary to resolve the problem. In either case, an experienced California family law attorney can help a concerned parent negotiate or dispute a particular divorce issue in order to achieve a fair and agreeable outcome. An attorney can also help a parent seek modification of an existing court order if needed.
