Actor Jesse Williamsfiles for divorce

Ohio fans of "Grey's Anatomy" may be interested to learn that Jesse Williams, one of the show's stars, has filed for divorce from his wife. The couple married in 2012 and have two kids.

The actor and his estranged wife reportedly dated for five years before tying the knot in June 2012. Williams said in an interview in 2010 that he met his wife while he was working as a teacher in New York. They relocated to Los Angeles and had their 3-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son. Although they were last photographed together in December 2015, they launched an app called "Ebroji" together in 2016. The app is a platform that allows users to curate GIFs. Neither Williams or his wife have commented on their impending divorce.

Ohio is an equitable distribution state, which means that courts will divide marital assets in a manner that it deems fair. Any assets that were obtained prior to the marriage belongs to the person who owned it unless they were commingled during the marriage.

There are several ways that former couples can reach a divorce agreement. They can go through mediation or a collaborative divorce, where the former couple works together to come to a decision about how to divide up their property. They can also have their family law attorneys assist with negotiations to come to a divorce agreement quickly and efficiently. In rare cases where the divorce is complex or the divorce is contentious, the case could go in front of a judge. In these cases, the judge will determine how the marital property should be divided.
