It was recently learned that Keri Russell, whom Baton Rouge readers may
know from the hit FX series "The Americans," had separated from
her husband of seven years.
Russell and Shane Deary separated over the summer, but news of their split
only recently broke.
Russell and Deary, who met when he did contracting work on her New York
City residence, wed on Valentine's Day 2007. They have two children
together, a 6-year-old son and a 2-year-old daughter.
Now, we are not writing about this story because we're all that interested
in celebrity dirt. Rather, what caught our eye here is that Russell and
Deary seem to have separated amicably. If gossip magazines didn't
catch wind of their split for almost 6 months, then there was probably
very little drama or turmoil. This seems to suggest that the two are headed
toward an uncontested divorce.
As Baton Rouge divorce lawyers, we focus a great amount of our practice
on helping clients who want to end their marriages without any of the
fuss or drama you hear about in divorce horror stories. Uncontested divorces
-- those in which the spouses agree with each other on the terms of the
divorce -- are not the right remedy for the end of every marriage, but
in situations in which they are appropriate, they're often exactly
what both soon-to-be-ex-spouses are looking for.
Now, separating smoothly and civilly does take a little work. You probably
have some questions about how to best go about this process. We want you
to know that you are free to
contact us if you are interested in learning more about uncontested divorce and how
or if the process will work for you.
