Jennifer Lopez is well-known in today's society, from being a recording artist to being an actress and a fashion icon. Most Alabama residents may remember Lopez for her hit roles in the movie "Selena" and the TV show "In Living Color." In spite of her successful career, she and recording artist Marc Anthony’s divorce became finalized after the two had been separated for three years.
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony separated back in the summer of 2011 and, as of 2012, Anthony officially filed for divorce. According to reports, the court granted the parents joint custody of their twin son and daughter. The agreement states that Lopez will keep the children a majority of the time, and Anthony will keep them for seven days each month. In addition, neither of the two will be obligated to pay alimony or child support.
In the midst of the divorce, both recording artists have continued their entertainment careers. Lopez recently released another album, and Anthony is expected to release an English pop album in the future. No other information about the divorce case has been reported.
A divorce can be a mentally challenging event for many spouses, including celebrities. In this celebrity divorce case, the two apparently were able to set their differences aside to facilitate both parents being involved in the children’s lives. Alabama parents who can also set aside their emotions can open the doors for better decision-making that is in the best interests of the children. It can also increase the chances of having favorable outcomes.
