Asset division equal in Jane Seymour, James Keach divorce

Even marriages that have lasted more than 20 years sometimes end in divorce. When they do, asset division typically presents some challenging issues. Actors Jane Seymour and James Keach recently agreed to split their assets evenly, though their agreement obviously required negotiations in order to accomplish that goal. The settlement was recently accomplished in a state outside Washington.

A number of assets were "split down the middle" in the Seymour/Keach divorce. The actress will  share future earnings from several television series that she co-produced with Keach. The two even split a country club membership, as well as 200 valuable coins from a shared collection. Ms. Seymour has gained sole ownership of their home in California and their English estate.

In a recent television interview, she explained that each has kept an open heart to the other. After a 22-year-marriage, Seymour says that she and Keach plan to maintain an amicable, ongoing relationship. She also mentioned that she has great respect for her former husband and that they will be seeing a lot of one another as they continue to raise their children together.

A person filing for divorce in Washington may want to adapt a similar philosophy that Seymour and Keach appear to have adopted. Some situations are complicated, particularly when children are involved, and finding a peaceable solution to problems may prove difficult without legal intervention. It is typically beneficial to obtain guidance from a legal professional experienced in handling family law issues when facing complex matters of asset division in divorce.
