Expect More Hollywood Divorces Once Awards Season Ends

March 9, 2016

The public should probably expect a number of high-profile divorce announcements by celebrity couples in the weeks and months ahead now that awards season is over. The reason for the potential rise in celebrity divorces is the kind of thing that can only happen in Hollywood: the couples simply did not want to be alone when they attended awards shows like the Oscars.

A major Hollywood divorce attorney recently spoke with Bloomberg Businessweek and said that several of her clients are planning to divorce now that Hollywood awards season is over. The divorce lawyer previously represented movie star Jennifer Garner in a divorce from Ben Affleck and musical star Gwen Stefani in a divorce from Gavin Rossdale.

It is expected that other celebrities will be seeking to dissolve their marriages now that the Oscars ceremony has been held. According to some observers, many Hollywood stars have fragile egos and don’t want to be alone when they walk the red carpet.

Laura Wasser, a go-to divorce attorney for numerous celebrities, said that one of her most important tasks is to keep the media at bay and make sure that a client who is thinking about filing for divorce doesn’t have their marriage secrets spilled to the press.

Hollywood movie stars and musicians aren’t alone in considering divorce as a realistic option after the first few months of the year. Divorce rates go up across the country in February and March as the holidays come to a close and people begin to look forward to fresh starts at the beginning of the year.

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.
