Hilary Duff and husband finalize divorce

A California judge finalized the divorce of Hilary Duff and her husband Mike Comrie in late January 2015. The couple was married in August 2010 and were separated in January 2014, and it was reported that they would share custody of their three-year-old child. The couple did have a prenuptial agreement in place, and Comrie is giving Duff the family home in exchange for $2.4 million.

Duff was best known for her roles in "Lizzie McGuire" and "Younger". She is also known for her star turns in various movies. Mike Comrie played in the National Hockey League until 2011, and he was a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins when he retired.

In a divorce proceeding, there are many issues that the estranged couple will need to resolve. The first question is how to divide marital property. This may be accomplished through a prenuptial agreement, through informal negotiations between the parties or by having a court make a ruling based on state law. An attorney may be helpful during informal talks or during a formal trial. In addition to dividing marital property, questions related to child custody must often be answered.

Regardless of what the couple decides, the best interest of the child trump their desires. Generally, both parents will be given the ability to spend time with their children, but a judge may deny or modify any order that could put the child in danger. Custodial parents may also be entitled to child support payments from the other parent. If a child support order is put into place, it must be adhered to unless it is modified or terminated by the court.
