Tony Hawk files for third divorce in San Diego County
When a couple makes the difficult decision to divorce, it can be an emotional time for everyone involved. Not only the couple, but the couple’s children and extended family can be severely impacted as well. Holidays are no longer the same and cherished family traditions suddenly become just memories.
The divorces most heard about tend to come out of Hollywood. Whether busy schedules or constant attention from paparazzi drive them apart, famous couples seem to be splitting all the time, and the sports world is no exception.
Recently, pro skateboarder Tony Hawk filed for divorce from his third wife in San Diego County. The couple married in 2006 – two years after he divorced his second wife and 18 years after divorcing his first wife.
The two have a 2-year-old daughter together but say they will continue to be caring and devoted parents despite the divorce. They have asked the public to respect their privacy during their transition.
Most people’s divorces are not as public as Tony Hawks, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have to worry about all of the same things. Decisions have to be made about child custody and support as well as dividing assets. How often will each parent get to see the children? Who do they spend important holidays with? How much money should be paid to a spouse to help support the children? Who gets the house or the car? Whether it’s your first divorce or your second or third, these questions and many more all need to be answered.
