The long, drawn-out battle over child custody and complex asset division between the celebrity couple Kelsey Grammer and his ex-wife Camille has finally come to an end. Minnesota readers may be interested in knowing that the issues in the high net worth divorce have finally been resolved after two years of conflict.
Camille had filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years in 2010 and the couple was divorced in 2011. From the time of the divorce filing, both parties had been estranged from one another and had engaged in a bitter dispute over property they jointly held, which included three homes, as well as over the custody of their two children. During the period of time when negotiations were ongoing, the former spouses had ceased to communicate with one another directly and used only their lawyers to do so.
In an interview, Camille said that Kelsey had been unresponsive to her in discussing their children and other matters. She said that after they had decided on a settlement, Kelsey had insisted on changes to the arrangements. According to her, he was the source of the delay in reaching a final settlement.
According to sources, the couple had a total of $60 million in assets, which included a house in Beverly Hills. There was some significant dispute over whether they should keep the home or sell it, but it seems that they have reached an agreement to sell or lease the sprawling property. The couple also reached a settlement on their other properties and on child custody. The consensus is that the settlement is generally in favor of Camille.
Individuals involved in such high asset divorce disputes and complex asset division should be aware of state laws that may impact their ability to defend their rights in court and that would affect the settlement that they desire. Custody and property division both are complex issues that can take a great deal of time and money to resolve under some circumstances.
