David Duchovny and Tea Leoni Navigate California Separation

According to a recent note in the San Francisco Chronicle actors David Duchovny and Tea Leoni were able to see past their differences for at least one day, spending time together with their children recently despite the couple’s long-standing California separation and pending divorce.

Duchovny and Leoni “put their recent split aside to celebrate Independence Day together with their children” even though they “confirmed last week that they plan to end their marriage,” the paper reports. The couple have a 12-year-old daughter and a nine-year-old son.

The family outing may indicate that the estranged couple have managed to find some measure of accommodation with one another after initially splitting up when Duchovny admitted to his sex addction, then reconciling, and finally splitting again (this time, apparently, for good). The couple have been married since 1997, the paper reports. According to the Chronicle Duchovny and Leoni have not yet formally filed for divorce, despite their recent announcement that they intend to do so.

Remaining on good terms with an ex (or soon-to-be ex) is never easy. This is, however, an area where an experienced Los Angeles or Orange County divorce and family law attorney can offer invaluable assistance. An Orange County divorce lawyer’s job goes far beyond simply representing and defending your interests in legal proceedings. By acting as your surrogate an attorney can help calm the sometimes heated and emotional nature of a California divorce settlement and child custody negotiations.

For this reason it is especially important that your comfort level with your Orange County divorce lawyer is high. Being able to discuss legal and personal matters openly with your counsel is of the utmost importance if an attorney is to be able to give you the best possible representation.
