I was intrigued to hear about Will Smith and Jade Pinkett’s marriage plan. The more I listened, the more it made absolute sense.

We hear and read about celebrity ‘quickie’ divorces all the time. The term implies that there is a special procedure for celebrity couples or ‘important’ people.

You tell me that you left the matrimonial home last week because you could not bear the atmosphere in the house anymore. You took some belongings but you have left some paperwork and important documents. Your husband is refusing to give you the keys and is threatening to change the locks. He will not give you your documents and is not communicating with you reasonably. The house and mortgage are in joint names.

Thank you for your question. I'm not sure whether you are married. If you are married, the mother of the child may attend alone to register the birth and then enter your details as father.

I'm divorcing. Can my wife stay in our large expensive house until our kids are 16? I also want the kids with me.
