When the fur starts flying: pets and divorce

With 62 percent of homes in the U.S. having a pet, it's no wonder that those furry creatures become a sticking point when it comes to divorce. Deciding to divorce is difficult, especially when you consider child custody, child support, alimony and property division. The latter, though, is where your pet comes in.

Actors finalize divorce after two year battle

Orange County readers are likely familiar with the Hollywood actors Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. Though the couple split in November of 2011, their divorce was just recently finalized. Kutcher filed divorce paperwork in December of 2012 and since then, Moore has been seeking a common factor in many divorces: alimony. Allegedly, Moore was seeking $25 million as a lump sum form of spousal support, partially fueled by Kutcher's alleged infidelity. However, with Kutcher as one of television's highest paid actors, as well as the hand behind some tech startups and the face of a popular digital camera, the actor's net worth likely had a hand in the holdup as well.
