Real Housewives star Porsha Williams discusses her divorce

Porsha Williams has become a celebrity through her involvement on the reality television show "Real Housewives of Atlanta." The show followed Porsha and her former husband, NFL star Kordell Stewart. The two have recently gone through a divorce and Williams has stepped forward to set the record straight on exactly what happened.

Williams was recently interviewed on Bethenny Frankel's talk show. During that interview Williams explained that she didn't ask for anything during the divorce. She didn't ask for alimony or anything large in the divorce settlement. She believes that everyone is painting her out to be the victim, but Williams explained that she decided to settle and not even take the matter to trial. That decision was what she thought was best for her.

When a couple goes through a high asset divorce, there are many things to consider. Because a large number of assets are involved, the couple may have to make more decisions regarding how to split those assets. Some couples are able to discuss the situation with their attorneys and come to an agreement about splitting those assets. Others, however, may not be able to come to an agreement. These couples must instead rely upon the court system to divide their assets.

In the state of Massachusetts, the court divides a divorcing couple's assets by way of equitable distribution. This means that the court considers the property that was acquired during the marriage, or marital property, and splits these items in a way that the court deems to be fair and just. What is considered fair and just by the court is not always what is a perfectly even split.

Individuals considering a high asset divorce should seek the assistance of an experienced legal professional to help them protect their rights and those assets that are rightfully theirs.
