Atlanta Falcons Owner, and Co-Founder of Home Depot, Officially Served with Divorce Papers


It has been more than a year since billionaire Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons and co-founder of The Home Depot, has been separated from his wife, Stephanie Blank. Although the couple has been estranged since October 2011, Blank's wife of 16 years just recently served him with divorce papers which she filed in Fulton County, Georgia. According to news reports Mrs. Blank filed for divorce based on grounds that the marriage is irretrievably broken. In the state of Georgia, this type of divorce is also known as a no-fault divorce.

In most cases, the two parties settle all issues including spousal support, property division, child custody, child support and more, prior to going to court. The Blank divorce papers state that both parties have come to a confidential settlement agreement as to all aspects of the divorce, including coming up with a "comprehensive parenting plan" designed to ensure both parents are able to play an active role in the lives of their three young children. Filing for divorce can be an extremely confusing and difficult experience, regardless of whether you are involved in a high net worth divorce or not.

Anyone who goes through a divorce must face a great number of critical decisions, and resolve numerous issues, before the court can be expected to issue a final divorce decree. If you are considering filing for divorce, you are advised to contact Henrickson & Sereebutra at your earliest convenience and consult with one of their skilled divorce lawyers.

    “No one likes spending money on attorneys, but she saved me THOUSANDS!”
    I've spent the past year working with Suzanne to resolve my child custody legal issue. She is thorough and an excellent communicator. Observing her at trial was impressive because the opposing attorney was an utter disaster. Suzanne was organized and articulate. No one likes spending money on attorneys, but she saved me THOUSANDS!

    “Thank you Suzanne for giving me hope and for having a moral backbone!”
    I only spoke with Suzanne for an hour or so but in that time I could tell she is a person that cares about the truth and ethics. She seems like the attorney that will fight for her client if she believes that are in the right. She understands the legal and political landscape of Paulding and Cobb counties. If things with my attorney do not give me more confidence in the next 3 weeks I am hiring Suzanne. Thank you Suzanne for giving me hope and for having a moral backbone!
