Just a couple weeks after Alabama Governor filed for divorce
, Maine’s 1st Congressional District U.S. Democratic Representative Chellie Pingree has also filed for divorce. Pingree has been married to hedge fund manager, Donald Sussman, for four years and says the decision to divorce has been mutual and amicable. The couple married in 2011 and a year later, Sussman bought the Portland Press Herald, and the sister newspapers, saving the business. Financial agreements have not yet been made public regarding the divorce.
When a decision to divorce is reached by both individuals in a marriage, the process can be simplified. However, a vast majority of divorces
are not simple and require the legal assistance of an experienced divorce attorney. Even if the divorce is a mutual agreement, the couple will experience emotions that can alter their judgment regarding issues of a divorce. Most people experience sadness, confusion, anxiety, and anger during a divorce, and those feelings can cloud one’s logical thinking. Financial issues, dividing property, and child custody are all important aspects that require a non-bias party to manage the issues and process of divorce.
