Jennie Garth of “Beverly Hills 90210” fame and her husband of 11 years Peter Facinelli, star of the “Twilight” series announced today they are splitting, though TMZ reports they have not filed the divorce papers.

Garth and Fanicelli met in 1996 when they worked on a television movie entitle “An Unfinished Affair.” They married in 2001 and havethree children together.

The couple announced the split in a joint statement today, “While we have decided to end our marriage, we share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful
daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time.”

This is the first marriage for Peter and the second for Jennie. Men and women who marry more than once are at a greater risk of needing divorce attorneys to end their second and third marriages.

While this split seems like it will be an amicable dissolution for the couple and their divorce lawyers, there are many others that do not. Hollywood divorces are frequently wrought with scandal with and contentious issues.

Even when a divorce is amicable, there are many issues to settle such as child custody and division of assets. Some couples are able to settle these issues out of court. But many others require the help of a divorce attorney to come up with settlements that are agreeable to both parties.
