Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow complete high asset divorce

Anyone in Florida who is going through the end of a marriage should be grateful not to hold celebrity status. Having the ins and outs of one’s high asset divorce made into national news could not be easy, even for those who have made a living courting the attention of the media. One of the latest celebrity couples to go through a divorce is comprised of musician Chris Martin and actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

This is one celebrity divorce that has been overwhelmingly positive. The couple shares two children, and both parents have gone to great lengths to remain amicable as they worked through the details of their divorce. Many readers are familiar with their approach to divorce, which is known as “conscious uncoupling.” While not their own invention, Paltrow and Martin have certainly brought awareness to the approach.

Through conscious uncoupling, the pair have put their children at the center of their divorce, and have made decisions that will support and nurture their kids. They continue to do things together as a family, and have found a way to share parenting time that works for all involved. Of note, there have been no reports of struggle or strife as the couple moved through the divorce process, which is a difficult feat given the fact that the media is constant within their lives.

For those in Florida who admire Martin and Paltrow’s unusual approach to divorce, it is important to understand that a similar path is available through the collaborative divorce process. By placing an emphasis on shared goals and what is best for all involved, it is possible to move from married to single with grace. Whether in or out of the spotlight, an amicable high asset divorce is a worthy endeavor.
