Hilary Duff files for divorce, seeks custody of son

With the information people can find on the Internet, it shouldn't come as a surprise that posts, tweets, pictures, and other information can sometimes affect a marriage. This is especially true for people who have achieved celebrity status. The recent news of Hilary Duff filing for divorce from Mike Comrie hammers this point home. Our Texas readers who have followed this couple might wonder what led to the break up.

Some of our readers might remember reports of Comrie's night in Beverly Hills. He was allegedly being wild that night. Reports of the incident broke out on the Internet. It seems as though that night might have been the final straw. Duff filed for divorce in January of this year with a notation that the couple has been separated since January of 2013.

The court papers, in which Duff asks for custody of their son, cite irreconcilable differences as the cause of the divorce petition. Duff's mother has remarked that her daughter and Comrie make better friends than a married couple.

Duff has said that they are trying to go through this in a loving manner. While she wants Comrie to have visitation with their child, she is concerned that his partying ways and drinking could have a bad impact on the young boy.

Even in the most amicable of divorces, there are bound to be some areas that are more difficult to work through. In those instances, it best to know the law and understand your rights so you can stand firm in your position when necessary.
