Todd Palin seeks divorce from VP nominee Sarah Palin

The husband of one-time candidate for U.S. vice-president is seeking an end to his marriage. Virginia residents will know Sarah Palin as the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee. Her husband of 31 years, Todd Palin, is filing for divorce, allegedly because of incompatibility of temperament. They are both 55 years old.

The couple have four children and Todd Palin is asking for joint custody of the one child who is still a minor under the law. The couple have had to dodge media rumblings of trouble in their marriage for at least the last decade. For the last six months, Todd has not been on Sarah's social media accounts, according to media reports.

The filing for divorced used the couple's initials instead of first names, but the date of marriage matched up with the couple's information. Todd Palin apparently filed a separate document asking the court to keep confidential the details of the divorce from his wife -- who was a former Alaska governor. The divorce filing indicated that the two find it impossible to live together as husband and wife. 

Whether a couple has celebrity status or not, when a marriage is over, it's over. Divorce can unleash a number of issues with which a lawyer may be able to help. Virginia residents who are thinking divorce may be on the horizon for them, may wish to get legal counsel from a lawyer experienced in family law. It is best to get answers to questions that may be perplexing or complex before moving forward in the divorce process.
