Michael Moore, familiar to Colorado movie fans as the director of such satirical documentaries as "Roger and Me", plans to bring two high-powered executives into the courtroom as witnesses in his divorce litigation from his wife of 23 years, Kathleen Glynn. Glynn was a producer of several of Moore's documentaries. Ari Emanuel is Moore's film agent and Mort Janklow is the literary agent for several of Moore's books, including 'Stupid White Men" and 'Downsize This! Random Threats from an Unarmed American." The two men can give testimony as to Moore's earnings, and it is speculated they will testify favorably against Glynn in the high asset divorce proceedings in recounting how she damaged Moore's reputation squandering millions of dollars in marital assets by building an expensive vacation home.
Apart from dealing with child-centered issues, asset division is quite possibly the messiest part of any Colorado divorce. Both parties want to ensure that they walk away from the union with a fair and equitable amount, especially when they have large assets to both divide and protect. For many high-profile couples, or those going into the marriage with substantial means, a prenuptial agreement may be the best way to protect their investments should the marriage not work out.
Marriage can be a difficult relationship to maintain over the years. For celebrities and other high-profile couples in Denver, it can be especially complicated because of the constant attention of the public. Like everyday married couples, celebrity couples also occasionally decide that the differences between them cannot be overcome and divorce is the best option.
Divorce is never easy. By the time a marriage has reached that point, both parties are typically ready to end the whole ordeal as quickly as possible. Sometimes it may not be as easy as signing a paper to finalize the dissolution of a marriage. Particularly when a wealthy or high-profile couple is divorcing, the process can become long and drawn out as both parties fight for what they want and feel they deserve.
Marriage is most often entered into with high hopes and the best of intentions. Unfortunately, however, for any number of reasons, sometimes a couple may decide it is best to file for divorce. While the decision itself can be difficult, it can be just the tip of the iceberg. Particularly when the couple shares significant assets, there can be disputes over the division of those assets.
It should come as no surprise to readers in Denver that divorces are, at times, long, drawn out affairs. This can be due to any number of factors, including extensive time spent on valuation and asset division, as well as the case itself just making its way through the court system. For celebrities and high-profile couples in particular, there are times when the divorce proceedings and settlement process lasts longer than the marriage itself.
