Jessalyn Gilsig Southern California Divorce Follows Long Separation

In a case of life imitating art, several celebrity websites are reporting that Glee actress Jessalyn Gilsig and her husband, Bobby Salomon, have filed Los Angeles County divorce papers. Ironically, as Contact Music notes, Gilsig’s character on the hit TV show also recently signed divorce papers.

According to Contact Music Gilsig and Salomon, a film producer, have known each other since high school (presumably quite some time ago – she is 39, according to Monstersandcritics) but married only in 2006. They have a four year old daughter. A publicist for Gilsig reportedly told E! News that the couple’s split is amicable.

Perhaps more surprising is the news that the couple have been separated for a year and that even the divorce papers were filed almost six weeks ago – surprising if only because the celebrity-tracking websites rarely take that long to dig out public documents concerning high-profile break-ups.

While few details of the LA divorce have made it into the public domain, one could argue that Gilsig and Solomon’s success at keeping their separation and subsequent Southern California divorce out of the press until now is a good argument for a careful approach to the legal complexities of a Los Angeles or Orange County divorce.

Even an amicable split can be a lengthy and emotionally draining process. Developing a close, professional relationship with an experienced Los Angeles or Orange County divorce lawyer at an early stage of the break-up can be a key step that smoothes your way through the family court system. An Orange County family law attorney can help you through every step of the process, addressing issues of legal separation, child custody, the division of assets and the precise wording of the final divorce settlement.
