Director faces divorce

Florida residents who are fans of film director Michael Moore may have read about his recent marital problems. Moore is currently undergoing a split that one source characterized as "vicious." He is divorcing his wife of 23 years, Kathleen Glynn. Though Moore is perhaps better known than Glynn, she had a hand in his success, as she produced some of Moore's documentaries for which he has become famous. The couple also amassed tens of millions of dollars during their time together, and much of this high asset divorce will undoubtedly deal with dividing the large amount of money and property they have between the two of them.

However, Moore's legal team is especially concerned with Glynn's building of a large vacation mansion in Michigan, the couple's native state. She allegedly had the home built with marital funds, and Moore's team is claiming that it has been damaging to his reputation. This is because he's gained a unique, man-of-the-people niche in Hollywood and through his books. One periodical even referred to the home as a symbol of Moore's hypocrisy.

Moore's team has called in two of his film and literary agents to serve as witnesses. They will explain Moore's unique role in Hollywood and attempt to explain the damage done to his reputation and earnings due to Glynn's building of the house.

For those whose marriages are ending, it may be difficult to consider what logistical challenges may arise. Divorce can be a complex process, and for those unfamiliar with it, it may be helpful to consult with a lawyer who has experience in handling these types of cases.
