Divorce appears amicable as Usher and wife file divorce papers

As a singer and songwriter, Usher has attracted music fans in Illinois for years. Although his career endures, his most recent marriage has ended. His marriage that began in September 2015 when he joined with a woman who had worked as his manager is drawing to a close. They filed the court papers necessary to proceed with a divorce.

Media reports state that the 40-year-old entertainer gave Dec. 24, 2017 as their official date of separation in court filings. The couple had dated for six years before tying the knot, but they have made a mutual decision to discontinue the marital relationship. In March 2018, the couple released a statement that affirmed their friendship and affection for each other despite their desire to divorce.

They did not have any children together, and they have already prepared a settlement agreement. The terms of the settlement remain confidential and await final processing by a family court. The attorney representing Usher is the same person who served him in the past when he had a child custody battle with another ex-wife.

When a person chooses to end a marriage, the option exists to work out the details of the divorce settlement privately. If both parties can come to terms, then the arbitrary decisions of a judge would not be necessary when dividing marital property or assigning child custody. Legal representation remains appropriate even if a person does not need to litigate a divorce. An attorney could provide advice about legal rights to retirement assets, real estate or access to children. To defend the person's best interests, especially those of a high net worth individual, an attorney could manage negotiations with the other party.
