Even for those people in Marietta who aren’t fans of the Kardashians, the announcement that Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have finally divorced may come as a relief. Approximately one and a half years after Kardashian filed for divorce, which was only 72 days into their marriage, Kardashian and Humphries are legally divorced. Although many in Marietta may see this as a unique story and one that could never happen to them, this kind of delay is not too uncommon when it comes to divorce.

Divorce is not simple and sometimes it takes many attempts before a judge will accept a divorce settlement. For some people, the reason why they are getting divorced is because they can’t agree with their spouses, which would make setting up a divorce agreement that much trickier. For others, the pain, anger or other emotions may make it difficult to even talk to, much less negotiate with a soon-to-be ex-spouse. All of these can drag out and make the divorce process more difficult.

An experienced divorce attorney, however, is an important tool in negotiating with an ex. Not only is the attorney unaffected by the emotions of the divorce, but he or she knows how to foster agreements and move things along, preventing them from stagnating indefinitely. It is certain that Kardashian and Humphries’s attorneys were hard at work since Kardashian filed for divorce in October 2011.

Kardashian has been pushing for a divorce for over a year and a half, but Humphries has only recently agreed to a divorce. Previously, he had been hoping for an annulment, claiming that the marriage was fraudulent. Moreover, he asked his former wife to apologize, saying that he would agree to a settlement if she did.

For now, however, the Kardashian divorce saga is over.
