Should you ask a celebrity to tell your spouse that you want a divorce?

On Behalf of | Jan 14, 2021 | Divorce

One of the toughest parts of divorce is the moment you tell your spouse that it’s over. Even if the two of you have been having problems for a long time, your wife or husband might still be shocked and upset to hear what you have to say.

Your spouse will find out about the divorce sooner or later, at least once they are served with the papers. But with the possible exception of cases of domestic abuse, they deserve to know the truth before then. On the other hand, a lot of people in Staten Island struggle with confrontation. Instead, they might have a friend or other third party deliver the news. Thanks to the video message app Cameo, divorcing people can now hire a celebrity to let their spouses know.

Cameo and divorce in Staten Island

Famous (and infamous) figures from movies, television, music, sports and politics make themselves available on Cameo to record short video messages at customers’ requests. Though not originally intended as a way of ending a marriage or relationship, more and more people have used Cameo for that purpose, according to The New York Times.

It isn’t clear why. There are probably several reasons for this apparent trend. Some people might think that learning about their impending divorce from a favorite actor or sports star can soften the blow for their spouse. Others might be seeking social media attention for bringing, say, Matthew Perry into their personal lives.

Once the telling is done

Whether you are the one who initiates the divorce, your spouse does, or the two of you agree to end your marriage, once the decision is made, your next step is to find an experienced family law attorney to represent you. Your lawyer will represent your best interests in property division, child custody and visitation, and more.
