Musicians Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale to divorce

On Aug. 3, California native Gwen Stefani filed for divorce from her husband Gavin Rossdale. The two famous musicians were married for nearly 13 years and had three children together before calling it quits. According to a public statement released by the couple, they have agreed to share joint custody of their three young sons.

Stefani and Rossdale were married in September 2002 and had their first child four years later. In the couple's public statement, they said that the decision to end the marriage was mutual. The divorce paperwork filed in Los Angeles Superior Court cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. A court spokeswoman said that Stefani signed the paperwork first.

Stefani and Rossdale were not the only celebrities to talk about a split on Aug. 3. The same day that Stefani filed for divorce, country singer Reba McEntire wrote on her website that she was separating from her husband Narvel Blackstock after 26 years of marriage. McEntire did not say whether her and Blackstock were planning to file for divorce. Will Smith took to his Facebook page on Aug. 3 to shoot down false rumors that he was divorcing Jada Pinkett Smith.

There are many important things to sort out at the end of a marriage, and many spouses become overwhelmed by the process. A family law attorney may be able to help a divorcing spouse to determine what outcome they want to achieve in negotiations and gather documentation to strengthen their position. Some divorces can be resolved amicably outside of court, but an attorney may also help prepare a client for litigation.
