Amy Poehler and Will Arnett divorce underway

Over a year after separating, Will Arnett and Amy Poehler are heading into the divorce process.

The marriage between the two began in August 2003. In 2012, they decided to separate. Arnett submitted a divorce petition, thus kicking off the divorce process, earlier this month. This will be Arnett's second divorce and Poehler's first.

Poehler and Arnett have two young children. Among the important things to determine in a divorce in which the former couple has children who are minors is what will happen in regards to the custody of the kids. There are two primary aspects of child custody: physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody deals with who a child will reside with and legal custody deals with who has the authority to make decisions regarding the child. In his divorce filing, Arnett has asked for joint custody in regards to both of these aspects of child custody. One wonders if this will be the custody arrangement that is ultimately reached in this divorce.

Given that both Arnett and Poehler have been very successful in their acting careers, it seems likely that this divorce could involve quite a bit in the way of assets. One wonders if any major property division issues or disputes will arise as this divorce proceeds.

It is important to note that one doesn't have to be a celebrity or have vast amounts of assets for property division to be a significant issue in their divorce. Impactful property division matters can arise for divorcing couples from all different walks of life.
