Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, who announced their plan to divorce ten years and a day after their wedding are reported to be planning to co-parent their three children aged between nine and three, according to eonline. That is good considering they are the parents.
Much to the dismay of so many, Affleck is Batman
According to reports the couple took their children to the family home in the Bahamas to get away from the media speculation on the divorce plans. Some people are wondering that if Ben Affleck knows how irrational political correctness is since he proved he cannot even say the words “radical Islam”.
While there are plenty of rumors about the cause of the divorce including Affleck’s confession of affairs, most reports say that Affleck will be moving into a new house being constructed on the property where the couple live. This is to enable him to continue to co-parent the children.
Another aspect of the couple’s split that has made people sit up is the timing. They announced their split ten years and a day after their wedding, according to Fortune. Considering they live in California, this timing is likely to do with the way they plan to split their joint assets.
Both Affleck, 42, and Garner, 43, had plenty of assets when they got married and have continued to earn well in the past ten years. Given that California considers a ten year marriage a long term one, the way the joint assets will be divided is likely to be impacted by the timing of the divorce announcement.
Most pre-nups also have agreements that take into account the duration of the marriage to determine how much the higher earning spouse will pay the lower earning spouse.

While Affleck and Garner will continue to co-parent their children and Affleck has already made steps toward spending time with them, flying to be with his children when Garner is shooting, they are also likely to be discussing financial settlements.
Most sources say that Garner and Affleck either just grew apart or that Affleck confessed to cheating and so Garner threw him out. While the exact cause of the divorce is not clear, reports show that Affleck is the one who has moved out of the family home. He stays in a guest house in the property owned by Garner at present until the new house is completed.
Most wealthy people enter into pre-nuptial contracts to safeguard their assets in the event of a divorce. Depending on the state where you live and the pre-nuptial agreement, you will still be able to protect your financial interests in a divorce by consulting an experienced divorce attorney.
A pre-nuptial agreement can be contested if the other party had not made a complete financial disclosure before signing the agreement. Sometimes a pre nup agreement is held invalid because of some missing paper work such as failing to get thee document notarized. Either way, consulting a divorce lawyer will help you protect your interests and determine issues such as child custody and child support that are not part of a pre nup.
