Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, are divorcing, ending a 25-year marriage that played a role in the creation of an e-commerce company that made Bezos one of the world’s wealthiest people.

consultationThe decision to divorce comes after a trial separation, according to a statement posted Wednesday on Jeff Bezos’ Twitter account. He and his wife both signed the announcement, which ended with a vow to remain “cherished friends.”

Divorce is a stressful and highly charged emotional experience that implicates division of property, child custody and support, and spousal maintenance! In addition, the law can be complex and confusing.

Do you know the difference between community and separate property? Did you know the legal standard for the division of property needs to be “fair and equitable” not equal.
