Drew Barrymore’s Divorce Appears to Be Amicable

August 15, 2016

Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore is currently going through the divorce process with her husband Will Kopelman. The ex-couple’s divorce is said to be amicable, which is highly unusual for these kinds of celebrity divorces, especially when the marriage involves two high net worth individuals.

In this case, the presence of children in the marriage could be playing a factor in the cordial nature of the divorce between Barrymore and Kopelman, as both parents are believed to be extremely protective of their children. The former couple has two children, a three-year-old girl and a two-year-old boy, both of whom were mentioned prominently in a joint statement that Barrymore and Kopelman issued to People magazine. In the statement, the ex-couple noted that getting divorced will not change the fact that they are still a family together. The divorcing couple also stated that their kids will continue to be a priority in their lives.

Barrymore, who is 41 years old, has been married to Kopelman for approximately four years. They were friends for years prior to getting married. Although the couple reportedly separated in April 2016, they did not officially file for divorce until recently. The divorce documents filed by Barrymore classify the divorce as “uncontested.”

Interestingly, Barrymore is currently appearing on a popular Bravo network TV show, Odd Mom Out, that was created by Kopelman’s sister. Despite the fact that Barrymore is going through the divorce, she reportedly remains close friends with her sister-in-law.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
