Robin Thicke and Paula Patterson issue statement about divorce

Dealing with a divorce that you didn't want to happen is hard. When other people are watching your relationship fall apart, the situation might get more complex because of the attention. For people who live in the public eye, going through a divorce sometimes means dealing with speculation and all the public hoopla associated with stardom. Recently, Robin Thicke and his wife Paula Patton announced they were divorcing, but some speculations are being made about the situation.

A joint statement issued on Feb. 24, 2014, says the couple was mutually separating. A source close to Thicke says that Thicke doesn't want to divorce his wife of eight years. Another source says the singer knew it was coming, but still wanted to save his marriage. A third source says that he fought for his marriage until the very end. The couple has a 3-year-old son together.

Things are said to be cordial between the couple. The joint statement issued said they will always be best friends and that they will always love each other.

Even though the couple says they will still be best friends, going through the divorce process likely won't be easy. They have to determine who will get what. They also have to deal with custody issues dealing with their son.

People who are considering a divorce should make sure they understand their rights so they can get a fair settlement. Seeking advice from an experienced Virginia family law attorney might help you to understand the divorce proceedings, your rights, and your responsibilities throughout the process.
