When readers in Jefferson County think of the property division portion of a divorce settlement process, they typically think of bank accounts, vehicles and homes. In some cases, a couple may have invested in artwork, memorabilia or other types of assets, however, that also often have to be divided up between the two parties.
According to reports, the property division process has wrapped up and the divorce finalized between The Black Keys’ front man, Dan Auerbach, and his now ex-wife. As a part of the settlement, it was reported that Auerbach’s former wife was awarded a piece of Bob Dylan’s hair. There were no details provided as to the hair’s estimated value or worth. She was also granted a house and an SUV, in addition to a $5 million monetary award in the divorce settlement.
No information was released regarding the assets and resources that Auerbach will retain according to the settlement. It was also not reported whether or not the settlement included any type of spousal support or alimony payments. It is unknown to the public whether or not the couple shares any children. If so, a family court will likely have to determine child custody and support arrangements.
It may be of benefit for anyone considering divorce to consult with an experienced lawyer. An attorney can help to look out for your interests throughout the legal process. If there are any items that are of particular importance to you, a lawyer may be able to help you negotiate keeping them in your divorce settlement.
