"Modern Family" star needs to work to fund costly divorce

For those who marriages end, things can be difficult financially. Apparently, that can also be the case for celebrities like Julie Bowen who divorce. The California-based "Modern Family" star says she has to keep working because the recent divorce from her husband of 13 years was a costly one. She made the statement after she was asked if she was prepared for the sitcom to come to an end.

Bowen, 49, who maintains an amicable relationship with her former husband, will be looking for a new gig since "Modern Family" will be calling it a wrap in April after 11 seasons. The couple first received negative media attention regarding their marriage in 2016. Bowen's then real estate investor husband did not attend the Emmy Awards with her.

The couple confirmed that they were separated in Feb. 2018. They share three sons, two of whom are twins. Bowen says she and her former husband are co-parenting their 12-year-old and 10-year-old sons a healthy way. She says her children are doing well and that's all that matters.

Whether divorce involves millions of dollars in assets or much less, getting a California attorney's advice on how to move through the process is essential. A family law lawyer can answer complex questions about issues regarding divorce like the division of property, child custody, child support and spousal support. Divorce can be scary, but an attorney may be able to lessen the stress a client might be feeling by providing legal support and putting a client in touch with others who might be able to help such as financial planners.
