Jessica Simpson's parents file for divorce in Texas

The parents of Jessica and Ashley Simpson announced late last month that they will be getting a splitting up after 34 years of marriage. Court papers revealed that Tina filed for divorce from Joe in a Texas court in late September. Anyone facing a divorce should be aware of their legal rights to protect themselves throughout the process.

Tina cited discord or conflict of personalities as the reason behind the filing. Joe filed a response to the petition asking that Tina not receive anything in the divorce. Rumors were rampant as to the cause for the divorce however nothing has been confirmed by either party, which said in a statement the split was amicable.

The couple has played a large part in both their daughters' careers. They seemed to still be happily married last year when Joe tweeted they were celebrating their 33rd wedding anniversary in Hawaii. However, when the couple listed their home for sale earlier this month it fueled speculation that their marriage was in trouble before the couple made news of the split public.

Having to go through a divorce on a public stage cannot make the process easier for this couple. Anyone facing a divorce, especially a high-asset divorce such as this one, may want to consider a more private approach to the divorce settlement negotiations, which may include mediation or a collaborative law approach to the dissolution of a marriage. Either method could be a faster and more discrete process and lends itself well to an amicable split.
