A divorce is a painful experience for everyone. However, for those who are in the spotlight, such as a high-profile couple, it can feel like the process is happening under a microscope. Reporters are constantly asking for details, and the public is not shy about offering their opinion regarding whether an alimony request should be granted or who should get the beach house.
Orlando readers might have heard that Ramona Singer, one of the stars of the reality series, “Real Housewives of New York City,” filed for divorce from her husband, Mario Singer. It was recently revealed that Mario, who works in manufacturing, has been having an affair with a 27-year-old woman. The couple have been married for 22 years. The case was filed during the last week of January.
The details of the divorce have been sealed but considering they both have successful careers, it is likely there are substantial assets to be considered in the divorce proceedings. There has been no mention of a timeframe for the case to proceed. Ramona has been spending her time visiting Florida with friends and enjoying Fashion Week in New York City.
Depending on whether Mario Singer decides to countersue in the divorce proceedings, the divorce could take between a few months to a few years. In many cases, the more assets there are, the longer it takes to come to a settlement. For people with less assets to consider, a divorce can be settled more quickly. Receiving advice from an experienced legal professional may help keep the proceedings on track and may help ensure an equitable result.
