Reality TV and rap music fans in Texas and throughout the country have been following the headlines regarding news about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. The Hollywood superstars, who have been married for approximately seven years and have four children together, have decided to divorce. While property division proceedings will involve high net worth assets, the former couple appears to be more focused on causing as little disruption to their children’s lives as possible.
Kardashian and West purchased a mansion together and did a lot of renovation on it. The house is now worth more than $50 million, and Kardashian will be retaining ownership of the home. She said that providing her children with a sense of security is what is most important at this time.
The four children born to Kardashian and West have never lived in any other home besides the mansion. This was the driving force behind the former couple’s decision to have Kardashian and her kids keep living in the house they shared during marriage so that the children do not have to leave the only home they have ever known. Kardashian and West have been living apart for quite some time, although Kardashian did not officially file divorce papers until last month.
Most family court judges agree that children who are learning to cope with divorce typically fare best in shared custody arrangements because it provides them the opportunity to spend ample amounts of time with both parents. Like most states, Texas has its own guidelines regarding child custody, child support and all other aspects of divorce. A concerned parent may seek consultation with an experienced attorney before heading to court to discuss ways to protect children’s interests.
