High-Profile Divorces Share Issues with Many Illinois Divorces

 Posted on April 26, 2012 in Divorce

According to, the lengthy divorce proceedings between former Yahoo President Susan Decker and her now-ex husband, Michael Dovey, may finally come to an end.

Married in 1992, the couple has three children together, and filed for divorce in October of 2007. Thus began negotiations over the division of the couple's significant assets, including multiple residences, sailboats, and private club memberships. Then came allegations of infidelity, drug use, and spying. This culminated in bitter divorce litigation that lasted for years. However, just days before their divorce trial was scheduled to start, the couple recently agreed on a settlement that was approved by the Marin County, California judge presiding over their divorce.

In other divorce news, Jennifer Lopez's lawyer, Ron Anteau, told People Magazine that reports of a fued between the couple are false. Antony and Lopez still work together on their TV show, Q'Viva! The Chosen, and Anteau said they're also working towards an amicable resolution to their marriage. The couple has 4-year-old twins, and a source says that they are simply trying to manage their children as any two busy people would. Earlier this month, there were reports that Antony had contacted Lopez's first spouse to ask about any hidden bank accounts, and that Lopez had continued to have relations with him while married to Antony.
