Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert divorced

Couples who are able to stay as amicable as possible during the divorce process may find it easier and quicker to get things settled, as fighting over every bit or property or issue takes a lot of time in the courts and a great deal of emotional energy. Country music stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert experienced firsthand how quickly a divorce can be settled when there's no battle over the assets.

The couple announced on July 20 that they had divorced, and the separation was apparently settled quickly due to a prenuptial agreement being in place. According to reports, Shelton was to leave the relationship with the 1,200-acre ranch in Oklahoma, while Lambert got the couple's house in Nashville. They were also able to settle who got the animals, with the couple keeping their respective horses and Lambert taking most of the couple's dogs. Lambert was also granted possession of a camel and llama reportedly kept at the couple's ranch but had to move them to a new location.

While prenups can make the property division process in a divorce much quicker, they are not a guarantee to a painless settlement. In some cases, one party no longer feels that the agreement is fair and challenges the prenup in court, and in certain situations, the courts can even set the prenuptial agreement aside entirely.

Even if you have a prenuptial agreement in place, it is important to talk with a family law attorney as soon as you are thinking about a divorce. Doing so ensures you move forward with as much information as possible about all of the different scenarios.
