Think you're done when you get your divorce? Remember, according to Nora Ephraim , "Marriages come and go, but divorce is forever!" And for some families, it is. There are many financial and legal reasons you may have to deal with your former spouse after your divorce.
Remember Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards? Although they were divorced in either 2005 or 2006 [depending on the internet source you read], Denise went back to court and filed an emergency motion accusing Charlie of unsafe conditions in his home for their children. There are many more instances of celebrity couples who fight long after the divorce papers are signed. These situations are not limited to celebrities.
