'Dukes of Hazzard' star faces divorce after 21 years of marriage

As someone going through a divorce in Massachusetts, the last thing you want to do is have to worry about your divorce haunting you due to child support, spousal support or other factors that weigh you down in the future. As your divorce progresses, defending your rights is important. Of course, you know that, and so does the man in this case.

If you follow entertainment news, then you may have heard about one of the most recent celebrity divorces involving John Schneider. Snider is best known for his role in "The Dukes of Hazzard," but he is also known for starring on Tyler Perry's, "The Have and Have Nots." Those who are fans of comics such as Superman may know Schneider as Clark Kent's father in "Smallville."

Schneider's wife of 21 years filed for the divorce in November. She cited irreconcilable differences as the cause while requesting spousal support following the divorce. Fortunately, the two will not have to struggle with child support or child custody issues, as they have three adult children together. This was Schneider's second marriage, the first being with a former Miss America winner. The 54-year-old actor has said that while the marriage is ending, doing so may help them preserve their friendship for the sake of their children as well as to set a good example.

These people are trying to move through their divorce in a civil manner, and that's what most people want. If you find yourself struggling through yours, seeking legal help can be of great assistance. With the right aid, you can maneuver the complications of your case in a manner that helps you get out of this stressful situation faster.
