December appears to have been an unusually active month for celebrity California divorce filings here in the Los Angeles and Orange County area. The latest high profile couple to announce they are headed to Southern California divorce court are Dylan Walsh and Joanna Going.
Walsh, perhaps best known for his starring role as a plastic surgeon on the TV series “Nip/Tuck” has been married to Going for just over six years, according to the Los Angeles Times. The newspaper also reports that Walsh is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s seven-year-old daughter. He also has two older children from his a previous marriage.
The LA Times reports that Walsh “expects to be paying spousal support” to Going, but neither the newspaper nor a number of celebrity-watching websites mention whether the couple have a signed California prenuptial agreement in place.
Situations like the one Walsh appears to be heading into can be especially awkward both financially and legally and often require especially careful and experienced assistance from a Los Angeles or Orange County divorce lawyer. Paying spousal and child support to two ex-spouses can be very difficult, even for a person with a high net value and excellent earning potential.
For a person in Walsh’s position two things are especially important: seeing that his children are properly cared while, at the same time, ensuring that his own financial future is reasonably secure. These can be difficult and complicated tasks under the best of circumstances, but are more easily accomplished with skilled legal advice.
