In 2009, R&B star Usher and his wife, Tameka Foster (Raymond), filed for and were granted a divorce. As part of their divorce settlement, and in addition to child support and spousal support payments, Foster was allowed to stay in the 12,000 square foot home owned by Usher. The one stipulation to the agreement was that should the singer wish to put the house on the market at any point, he would simply have to give his ex-wife 60-days notice to vacate the premises.
According to news reports, Usher has given his ex-wife notice and expects her to be out within the two-month time frame. This recent development is just another piece in their highly publicized divorce case, the first being their extremely heated custody battle which was finally resolved when a judge awarded Usher primary custody of the couple's two children back in August 2012. When most couples decide to get married, the last thing they are thinking is what happens if they should end up getting a divorce.
Unfortunately, in this day and age, divorce is becoming more and more common. In fact, according to a recent report issued by the Census Bureau, the divorce rate in the state of Georgia is 11.5 per 1,000 men and 11.7 per 1,000 women. With statistics like that, it is extremely important for individuals to know their rights and take steps to protect their interests.
