Actors Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have filed for separation, according to statements posted on their official social media pages. Legal separation is almost a divorce however, a spouse cannot remarry. The parties can divide the assets and pretend they are divorcing and even set child support payments. In addition, people file legal separation to avoid jurisdictional requirements of the divorce. In California there is a 6 months residency requirement to file a divorce. I do not think that either party had difficulty with the residency requirement. The legal separation may be the first step prior to a full blown divorce proceeding. Some spouses like to start off slow.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced on Sunday night via social media that they are legally separating after eight years of marriage.
Over the course of their relationship, the A-listers’ careers have boomed with Pratt being ranked by Forbes as one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors in 2016, raking in $26 million with his two film franchises, “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic Park.”
Meanwhile Faris reportedly makes $125,000 per episode for her sitcom, “Mom,” which currently wrapped it’s fourth 22-episode season.
